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.

    Sorry but this is absolute crap advice. 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!

    Just switch workbook view to "Page Break Preview" from the "View" tab. There will be no jumping around.

      I tried this and it makes no difference. I'm on Excel 2016 and the different views have no effect on that particular feature.

    i know this is over a year old BUT...it is still a problem. I use fill handle quite often particularly for sorting data but the double click sending me over 1000 cells away is more than an inconvenience!

    Since "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 :-[.
