Changing moving direction of the cell pointer after entering data

Excel automatically moves the cell pointer to the next cell down when you press the Enter key after entering data into a cell, but you can change this behavior to move it up, down, left, right and even stay on.

To change this setting, do the following:

    1.    On the File tab, click the Options button:

Excel 2010 Options

    2.    On the Advanced tab, in the Editing options group, choose the value for the After pressing Enter, move selection:

Advanced options in Excel 2010

Your choice is completely a matter of personal preference. Someone prefers to keep this option turned off.
