Navigating in Excel

Your mouse and arrow keys are the primary navigation keys for moving from cell to cell. Unlike Word, which uses an insertion point, Excel uses a cell pointer to show you the currently active cell. The active cell has a darkened border around it and accepts whatever data you enter next. As you press an arrow key, Excel moves the cell pointer in the direction of the arrow to a new cell, making the new cell the active one.

If you work with a rather large worksheet, you might find the Go To command useful. Press F5 to display the Go To dialog box, where you can select a range of cells that you might have previously named or type a cell reference value such as C141 to jump to that cell.
