How to display the active cell in top left in Excel screen?

Author: Sun Last Modified: 2020-09-14

Sometimes, you just want the active cell displayed in the top left in the Excel screen as below screenshot shown. In general, you may drag scroll bar down manually to finish this job, but here I introduce a VBA code to quickly scroll the active cell to the top left of the Excel screen.

doc active cell top left 1
doc arrow down
doc active cell top left 2

2. Click Insert > Module, and copy and paste below code to the blank script.

 Sub TopLeft()
Application.Goto ActiveCell, Scroll:=True
End Sub

Hi! This is exactly what I'm looking for, but I'm looking to work it with Google Sheets, not Excel. Do you know what the code would be for G-Sheets? I can't figure out how to translate it to make it work there. Thank you!

Thank you so much for the info. I have spent 3 hours looking up in books and googling to find a way to get a range of cells sitting at t3 through x42 to appear in the top left (A!) position on a button click. I got every answer but the right one, until now. The scroll did it for me. You are the only one who understands a question properly (or at least my questions). This site is now bookmarked at the top of the list.
