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.
- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 5 months agoSorry but this is absolute crap advice.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!

- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 5 months agoI tried this and it makes no difference. I'm on Excel 2016 and the different views have no effect on that particular feature.
- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 11 months agoi know this is over a year old BUT...it is still a problem.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!

- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 2 years agoSince "fill handle and cell drag-and-drop" is surely needed by most users, it's no solution to turn this off.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 :-[.
