How to disable double-click on cell border in Excel?
Normally, we double click on a cell to edit the cell content, however, the cursor jumps to bottom of the worksheet data as you may click on the cell border accidentally as following screenshot shown. This may be annoying if there are multiple rows, you should scroll up to the clicked cell. This article, I will talk about how to disable double-click on cell border in Excel.
To disable double-click on cell border feature, you can go to the Excel Options to configure an option, please do as this:
1. Click File > Options to go to the Excel Options dialog box.
2. In the Excel Options dialog box, click Advanced option from the left pane, and then uncheck the Enable fill handle and cell drag-and-drop option under the Editing options, see screenshot:
3. Then click OK to close this dialog box, and now, double-click on cell border feature is disabled at once.

Why did you have to monopolize computer programs just to turn them into a stinking pile of whale dung Microsoft? I'm livid right now. And we have to pay for this garbage?

This weird jumping to the bottom of the spreadsheet thing has been the bane of my existence at my job. Does anyone remember when Microsoft was GOOD and also FREE? Now you have to pay for it to constantly annoy you.

Sure, it disables the single most annoying thing that Excel does but at the same time it also disables one of the handiest and most important features of Excel, the ability to fill a column with repeated data or formulas which is something I use ALL THE TIME. This isn't your fault, this is all on Microsoft. How stupid are the Excel dev team? Honestly!

- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 2 years agoSince "fill handle and cell drag-and-drop" is surely needed by most users, it's no solution to turn this off. It's a very bad idea form MS guys to combine the option for a relatively useless but bugging feature with important features :-[.
