We may need to switch between cells in Microsoft Excel frequently. This article discusses several easy methods that can help us navigate between difference cells in Excel quickly.
- Navigate to specific cells with Go To command in Excel
- Navigate to specific cells with names

The Go To command will navigate us to any specific cell or cell ranges, only if you remember the position of a cell or cell range.
Firstly, open the Go To dialog box with clicking the Go To command item under Find & Select button, in Editing group under Home tab. You can also press F5 key to open this dialog box. See screenshot:
Secondly, enter the exact cells position in Reference. It can be a single cell address such as C13, or cell range as $C$143:$F$161;
After clicking the OK, it will locate the specific cell or cell ranges in worksheet.
If you have named cell range in current workbook, the names will be listed in the Go To dialog box. Pick out one of names, and click the OK, it will navigate the named cell range.
By using names, you can make formulas easier and more understandable. In addition, names can also help us skip to the named cell range immediately if you remember the names you defined.
Enter the exact name in the Name box on Formula Bar, and hold the Enter key, then it will locate the corresponding named cell range.
The Navigation Pane utility of Kutools for Excel can navigate us to the named cell range without remembering exact cell position or defined names in Excel.
