Is there a way to do this without using a mouse?

I'm in Google Sheets, with the focus on a specific cell, which already has content in it. I want the focus to move to the very end of the value in the cell so that I can start appending more content.

I've tried to find a way to do this without a mouse, but haven't found anything. It would sure save a lot of back and forth between keyboard/mouse.

  • Hi Tess, have you tried F2 + End? Double click right button mouse + End? Feb 11, 2019 at 20:55

From what you described the shortcut you are looking for is ARROW DOWN (if the cell is active)

  • if the cell is not active: ENTER + ARROW DOWN
  • if the formula/content of the cell is on more rows: ENTER + END
  • also you can try F2 + ARROW DOWN
  • or ultimate shortcut F2 + END
  • hm thanks, but that just moves the focus to the cell one below the starting cell. i want to stay on the same cell, but have the focus be at the end of the content within the cell.

If you press ENTER, in any cell containing content, the cursor will move to the end of the content and you can start typing!
