Allow Ctrl+Arrow navigation (as in Excel desktop app).
As a keyboard warrior I use this often, and Excel Online really hinders that workflow. Ctrl+Arrow navigation in documents of all kinds (even text fields online) is very important to me.
Happy to announce, ctrl + Arrows are available in production. Thank you for voting and influencing the product priority.
Over a year later and we still don't have this very fundamental method of navigation.
I'm not mad. I'm just disappointed.
I work with Excel online and find it difficult to use. I cannot easily navigate in the file as I do it when I use Excel program offline and cannot select things easily (big parts of my data). Try to make sure that Excel online is as easy as it is offline, thanks!

I'm actually amazed that there's no support for ctrl-arrow or shift-ctrl-arrow -- working with any spreadsheet beyond 50 rows (or 10 columns) is cumbersome without.
Wonderful! Thanks, Tamar.

Sweet! I was shared a Google Sheet this week and noticed it works there, very happy to see it coming to Excel online (which to say I prefer over 'Sheets' is a massive understatement - Excel is the best).
End+arrow is the legacy feature from Lotus 1-2-3. I actually still use that...set in my ways!
Isn't control arrow movement a legacy feature already in Excel. A left-over from those of us that cut our teeth on Lotus 123
I'd also like to add CTRL+SHIFT+arrow keys for selecting contiguous ranges. This is fundamental navigation for any Excel user.
Without it, Excel Online is virtually unusable because if you miss the end of the range it gets into a never ending scroll loop! Very frustrating.

Yes, this is very much needed. It wouldn't hurt to support End + Arrow navigation as well.
