    Default excel cell selection

    I experience an intermittent problem when selecting cells in a worksheet.
    The mouse goes into select mode, selecting all cells it passes over. Nothing else works, the only solution is to use task manager to shut down.
    Any clues.

    Hi Don,

    Possibles: -
    Worn out mouse with an oversensitive click, had a similar situation where the damn right mouse button kept activating itself, thank heavens for ctrl Z. This was due to a lose button. Nothing for it but to retire the mouse and buy a brand new one.

    Or you could update your mouse driver.

    Hope this helps let me know how you get on.

    I have seen the following happen before;if you're using a wheel mouse, the wheel can act as a third button and can be pressed down to lock the scroll/select. Pressing again will release.
