In this video, you are seeing me press the down arrow three times, and the up arrow three times. It might have been reversed, I don't remember. In any case, the up/down/left/right arrows don't work in Microsoft Excel 2007. I'm guessing I have a preference somewhere that's causing this, but I can't figure out what it could be.
