The slow way to the end of Excel
Some people have way too much time on their hands ….
Hunter Hobbs decided to find out how long it takes to scroll down to the very bottom row of Excel. That’s row 1,048,576. It only takes a moment and two keystrokes to get there, but Hunter decided to take ‘the road less travelled’.
It took him 9 hours 36 minutes and 10 seconds but you can see a time-lapse version that’s only 2 min 39 seconds.
I hope someone will take Mr Hobbs aside to show him how to do the same thing and more in a few seconds:
Get to the bottom row: Ctrl + down arrow
Get to the end column: Ctrl + left arrow
We got to the very end of Excel 2016 in a few seconds, including the time to take this screen shot.
