Moving Around the Excel Screen
Moving Around the Excel Screen
Each worksheet in Excel has more than
17 billion individual cells. Luckily, Excel offers
several methods using your mouse, your
keyboard, and even the Ribbon for moving around
them all. Depending on how you use Excel, you
may find that you will use all three methods.
Using the Keyboard
Arguably the easiest, but surely the most
common, way to move around an Excel worksheet is
by using the keyboard. Table 1-1 displays some
of the ways you can use the keyboard to move
around an Excel workbook.
