Hi,

When I hit down arrow in Excel 2013, whole sheet goes down instead of going one cel down.
The same for left up and right arrow buttons.

Please advise.
J.

With respect to Keyboard, do you have Num Lock ON?  Try turning Num Lock OFF.

With respect to Excel, go to Programs and Features, click on Office and do a Full Repair (not quick repair).

Third, create a new, test Windows User Account (Profile) and try Excel in the new Windows Account on the problem computer. Test to see if the issue occurs in the new Windows Account.
