Arrows on Keyboard Not Working in Excel

When this issue occurs, it becomes difficult to enter data in the Excel cells and worksheets. This problem is usually easy to solve whilst using Excel office software. Read on for the solution.


Solution For Malfunctioning Arrow Keys in Excel

  • Check whether your SCROLL LOCK is ON.
  • Just turn it off by pressing on the Scroll Lock button key on your keyboard!
  • Whilst the scroll lock might solve your problem it's worth noting that the keyboard arrow keys may also have caught dust and need cleaning up to function better.
