Navigating with your mouse
To change the active cell by using the mouse, just click another cell, and it becomes the
active cell. If the cell that you want to activate isn’t visible in the workbook window, you
can use the scroll bars to scroll the window in any direction. To scroll one cell, click either
of the arrows on the scroll bar. To scroll by a complete screen, click either side of the
scrollbar’s scroll box. You can also drag the scroll box for faster scrolling.
If your mouse has a wheel, you can use the mouse wheel to scroll vertically. Also, if you click the wheel and move
the mouse in any direction, the worksheet scrolls automatically in that direction. The more you move the mouse, the
faster the scrolling.
Press Ctrl while you use the mouse wheel to zoom the worksheet. If you prefer to use the
mouse wheel to zoom the worksheet without pressing Ctrl, choose File
Options and select
the Advanced section. Under Editing options, click the Zoom on roll with IntelliMouse
check box to check it.
Using the scroll bars or scrolling with your mouse doesn’t change the active cell. It simply
scrolls the worksheet. To change the active cell, you must click a new cell after scrolling.

The Ribbon can either be hidden or visible (it’s your choice). To toggle the Ribbon’s
visibility, press Ctrl+F1 (or double-click a tab at the top). If the Ribbon is hidden, it temporarily
appears when you click a tab and hides itself when you click in the worksheet. The title
