How to turn on/off the scroll lock in Excel?
In Excel, when you press Up and Down arrows or Left and Right arrows incautiously, the active cell moves at the same time. Sometimes, this is quite annoying, and you want to turn it on. Here, I talk about how to turn this scroll lock on or off in Excel.
A very easy way to turn on or turn off scroll lock is to press the Scroll Lock button on the keyboard.
Open the Excel, and then press Scroll Lock button on the keyboard to turn on it. By default, the Scroll Lock is off.
If you want to turn scroll lock off, just need to press the Scroll Lock button again.
If there is no Scroll Lock key in your keyboard, you can use this this method.
