For example,

In any text editor:

Command+right arrow will put your cursor to the Right of the line
Command+left arrow will move your cursor to the Left of the line

Is there an equivalent keybord shortcut for this in Excel for Mac?

FN + Left Arrow
FN + Right Arrow

    Thanks for that, didn't know that non-standard answer. Does anyone know if there's a setting to allow the normal Mac answer (command left/right arrow) to work?

  • @JohnM +1. Also the Option+Left/Right to jump words does not work in Excel. Very frustrating.
