Chapter 16. Spreadsheet Software > Navigating Around a Spreadsheet

Navigating Around a Spreadsheet

When you are using a spreadsheet, one cell is always active—that is, ready for you to input data. This cell is designated by a cell pointer, highlighted area, or flashing cursor. To make another cell active, you use the arrow keys, numeric keypad, or mouse to move to another location. Due to the limits on screen size, only a small group of cells can be displayed at any one time. If you wish to view additional cells, use a mouse or the arrow keys to move even farther on the spreadsheet.

Navigating around on a spreadsheet is much like looking through a window. Moving the window around to view additional cells is called scrolling. There are also special commands that will take you to predefined locations on a spreadsheet, such as the bottom or top.
