Microsoft Excel is a database program that allows you to prepare spreadsheets, charts and graphs. You can insert information into the spreadsheet's individual cells and put in formulas to calculate data. When working on a spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel, pressing the "Enter" key automatically moves the cursor to the cell directly below the one you were just working in. If you do not want the cursor to move down automatically, you can change the direction of the cursor's movement: up, left or right.
Click the "Office" button, which appears as the Windows Office logo in the top left corner of the screen.
Click on the "Advanced" tab. Under "Editing Options," there will be a drop-box labeled "Direction." This tells the cursor where to move after you hit "Enter."
Select the direction in which you want the cursor to move. Click "OK."
Tips & Warnings
- Save your work in Excel frequently to prevent losing data.
- Turning off your PC while working in Excel can delete any unsaved work.
