Chapter 2: Selecting and Editing Data
To move the cursor by using the keyboard, you can use one of many cursor
movement keys:
The (up/down/left/right) arrow keys
The Home/End keys
The Page Up/Page Down keys
Use the up/down/right/left arrow keys when you want to move the cursor
a small distance, such as up one line or right to the next cell in an Excel
spreadsheet.
To move the cursor faster, hold down the Ctrl key and then press the arrow
keys. If you hold down the Ctrl key, the up-arrow key moves the cursor up one
paragraph, the down-arrow key moves the cursor down one paragraph, the
left-arrow key moves the cursor left one word, and the right-arrow key moves
the cursor right one word.
Pressing the Home key moves the cursor to the beginning of a sentence (or a
row in a spreadsheet), and pressing the End key moves the cursor to the end
of a sentence (or a row in a spreadsheet).
Pressing the Page Up/Page Down keys moves the cursor up or down one
screen at a time.
Using any of the cursor movement keys moves the cursor to a new location.
Wherever the cursor appears will be where you can enter new data. Table 2-1
lists ways to move the cursor in each Office 2010 program.
