Scroll wheel not working in MS Excel

Have you ever been in a large spreadsheet and you can’t do one of the following two things:

  • Use your scroll wheel to navigate?
  • Use the “Find” tool and then have Excel jump to the desired cell that has the search query?

If this sounds like you, this means you likely have a portion of your screen frozen caused by “Freeze Panes”.  You can run into this problem if you’re using filters and you don’t realize you’re freezing a large portion of your unfiltered spreadsheet.

Easiest fix is to just disable the freeze panes function, un filter all your rows and then do a freeze panes on the A2 cell.

Hope we’ve reduced some MS Excel frustration!
