Arrow Keys working as Scroll Keys in Excel

\015 When I log into Microsoft Excel, my Arrow Keys are working as Scroll Keys. I noticed at the button of the spreadsheet there is box that has SCRL in it. I think that this might be the problem, but I am unable to determine how to turn this off.\015\012\015\012When I type something, I do have the ability to arrow backwards or forward to insert a word or something. I have to press the delete button or the back space button or use. my mouse. I noticed that there are three buttons above my key pad on the keyboad: The first one is for turning the numbers on and off; the second one is for turn the caps on and off; but I am unable to determine what the third button is for. I noticed that the blue light is on, but I can not figure out how to turn it off. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.\015

Answers :

The key that activates thenumeric pad arrow keys it is called "num lock", and it is located on top of the numeric keypad.

Laptops may have additional function buttons to activate the arrow keys.
The issue is that Scroll lock is turned on, turn this off and your issue will be resolved. As far as how to do it varies on the keyboard/laptop you have, MOST keyboards have a key labeled Scroll Lock or SCR or something of the like, laptops can be trickier some have a key just for that button others require you to hold down the function ket (fn) and the press the key that is labeled as scroll lock.

Up Arrow My up arrow seems to have a mind of it's own. It will start scrolling up to the top of any drop down lists and when typing an email or in Word it will jump up lines and continue my typing on the line above. I learned that if I hit the key enough it will temporarily stop but now the key won't work at all. I don't really care about that as much as the jumping about.
