Here are the steps I did a couple of years ago to fix the problem, hopefully they still work.
1. Have Excel open.
2. Press “alt+f” to open the file menu then press “t” for the options.
3. Press “control+tab” until the focus is on the “Advanced” options page.
4. Press “alt+e” to toggle the “Allow editing directly in cells”
option. Ensure that this is unchecked.
5. Press “enter” to save the changes. Editing cell contents should now work again.

Subject: How do I edit in a cell in Excel 2016
I'm using Windows 10, JAWS 2021, and MS Office Excel 2016. I used to be able to press F2 in any cell to edit in that cell in Office 2007 Excel, but I can no longer do that. I know that it is a matter of unchecking a check box, but where is it?
