Interesting.
Mine is checked and f2 works absolutely perfectly.
I use it all the time.

this actually wants to be *unchecked! It has to do with something visual, editing in the formula bar maybe. Absolutely *uncheck it.

Press alt+f then t for options,

Then a to advanced, tab to the checkbox:

Allow editing directly in cells check box

And make sure it is checked.

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?
