Absolute basic JAWS & Excel question


Barry G
 

Hi folks, I'm brand new to using Excel and have managed to do quite well from the help system, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to enter a cell containing text in order to cursor through or edit it! Could anyone prompt me to this really basic action please?

All the best,
Barry

Hi Barry,

F2 gives you the text of the current cell in edit mode. Press F2 again when you are finished.

Good luck!
