How to select Excel cell without mouse

I am running a Toshiba laptop with touch pad but i think the touch pad is having some problem and not working properly. So i am having trouble to select a cell in Excel 2007. When i do the same task with a mouse, it acts as though I am permanently holding down the left mouse button and select multiple cells. Do you guys have any idea how can i select Excel cell without mouse ?

Re: How to select Excel cell without mouse

You can simply select or go to any cell in Excel by doing this:
  • Press Ctrl + G. This will open a GO TO dialog box.

  • Type the Column + row number where you want to go. For example you need to go to 24 row in C column, then type C24 and press Enter.

  • Now copy the cell by Ctrl + C or press F2 to select any part of the text in the cell by using Shift + arrow key.

Also try this, Go To Control Panel,Open Mouse Settings.On Buttons Tab, Untick the ClickLock Box.

Re: How to select Excel cell without mouse

Thanks for the quick help friends. Ctrl + G has worked for me. I think i can also do that by typing C24 just next to the formula bar. Now i can work without the annoying touch pad. Thank YOu !!
