moderated Re: Excel Slowing Down Editing Formulas


when I experienced this about 6 months ago, for some reason (because I recalled a note), I pressed alt+dash which opened a context menu like when one presses alt+space bar, then arrowed to and entered on maximize. doing so also cleared up navigation and editing sluggishness issues.

I think in Excel, there are two windows to maximize, the main window and the working area.

What happens if you just start typing in the cell, only necessary to hit
f2 to edit current cell contents.  About all I can suggest is make sure
excel is maximized, and if it has been an age since you've done so, you
might want to restart.

is making editing in Excel extremely frustrating.  I am using the latest
version of JAWS and office 365 downloaded to my computer.

Does anyone have any suggestion on an Excel setting or JAWS setting I
