    Hi,

    Normally when I use Excel, the arrow keys on my keyboard allow me to move from one cell to the next, right, left, up, down.

    Just now when I was using Excel, the arrow keys were working as usual and then they changed. When I hit an arrow key, instead of highlighting the next cell, the page scrolls in the direction of the arrow. I don't know what happened. More importantly, how do I get it back to the way it was? Thanks.

    May or may not solve the problem, but no harm in trying:)
    OPen excel.
    Click on
    -Tools
    -Options
    -Transitions
    Nothing should be ticked on this tab. If anything is, untick it and see if that helps.

    You've got scroll lock turned on. Check the status bar at the bottom of the excel window (click View and make sure Status Bar is checked). If it's the scroll lock, you'll see SCRL just to the right of NUM.
