If you've ever accidentally pressed the Scroll Lock key on your keyboard and found that your arrow keys no longer work as expected in Excel, you know how frustrating it can be. Scroll Lock is a feature on some keyboards that allows you to scroll through a document without moving the cursor or selecting text. While this can be useful in some situations, it can also be quite annoying if you accidentally enable it. Fortunately, there is a simple shortcut key that you can use to disable Scroll Lock.
To disable Scroll Lock, simply press the Scroll Lock key on your keyboard. You should see a message appear on the screen that says "ScrLk" or "Scroll Lock". If you don't see this message, try pressing the Fn + C keys on your keyboard. This will toggle the Scroll Lock feature on and off.
Once Scroll Lock is disabled, you should be able to use your arrow keys to move around the spreadsheet as usual. If you find that your arrow keys are still not working, try restarting Excel. This should fix the problem.
If you're using a laptop or other device that doesn't have a Scroll Lock key, you can usually disable Scroll Lock by pressing the Fn + C keys. However, some laptops and devices use a different combination of keys, so you may need to consult your device's documentation to find the correct shortcut.
If you're using Excel on a Mac, the Scroll Lock feature is not available. However, you can still use the Fn + C keys to disable Scroll Lock.
