Scroll Speed for Excel

Hello,
I have an annoying problem with Excel
(who hasn't;).
I am trying to select some cells, and if I have to scroll down it goes way too fast and can't get it to only select the first say 50-100 cells in a column; Instead the program scrolls to 500 or 1,000 too fast.

Re: Scroll Speed for Excel

You could try some of the sort-cut keys instead.

shift + END down-arrow for a contiguous column of data.

shift + PgDn for screen at a time selection, etc.

Re: Scroll Speed for Excel

Thanks but that didn't work for what I am trying to do.
I want to highlight a range of data.
The method you suggest works but not if a cell is highlighted.
For some reason it is not scrolling as fast now. Maybe it is a bug in the program.
Thanks for the try.
