    UPDATE: The improved scrolling experience, which we call “Smooth scrolling”, is now available to a randomly selected 50% of Insiders who are using Excel build 16.0.14329 or greater. If you don’t see any difference, it means you’re not one of the lucky 50% of Insiders who have it enabled on their computer. Don’t worry, we’ll enable it more broadly soon.


    Good news! We’ve started working on this suggestion. You’ll be able to stop scrolling partway through the row or column. The sheet will no longer need to snap to the top and left edge of the cells. Thanks again for all your support and patience for this long awaited improvement.

    It’s available to Office Insiders first. Here’s how you can join – https://insider.office.com/en-us/join/windows.

    Thanks – Steve [Microsoft Excel]

    Lol, my solution to the problem is to buy a 49" super-wide monitor and never make sheets where I have to scroll down.

    Thanks for the support and the detailed discussion around this suggestion. We understand that there are some advantages and disadvantages with both MDI (multi-document interface) and SDI (single-document interface), and we currently do not have plans to revert to MDI. We do want to improve the experience with SDI so you can get your work done efficiently, and this post has helped toward that goal.

    Some of the specific issues mentioned are addressed as follows:
    – Stability: This has been a focus over the past several years, and the monthly releases in 2020 have been among the most reliable ever in terms of avoiding crashes.
    - Screen space – while it won’t get all the space back, you can minimize the ribbon to save some space. It only shows when needed.
    - Navigation between workbooks: you can use CTRL+F6, SHIFT+CTRL+F6, CTRL+TAB or SHIFT+CTRL+TAB to switch to the next workbook. …
