    We’ll send you updates on this idea

    Good news! We’ve started working on this suggestion, and we’re currently testing the improved scrolling experience in our lab. It will allow you to stop partway through the row or column. The sheet will no longer need to snap to the top and left edge of the cells. Since scrolling is such a fundamental and highly used action in Excel, it may take a while to get it right. We hope to have it ready within a few months, but can’t provide an exact target date just yet. Thanks again for all your support and patience for this long awaited improvement.

    We’ll post an update here when we start rolling it out for you to try. It will be made available to Office Insiders first. Here’s how you can join – https://insider.office.com/en-us/join/windows.

    Thanks – Steve [Microsoft Excel]

    @Roy,

    TL;DR : Excel smooth scrolling on Mac behaves like it should behave on Windows.

    Longer version :

    I am a Mac and a Windows user (in a VM). I don’t often use excel in Windows and did not even notice the smooth scrolling in Excel on Mac. By that I mean that it’s just natural and feels/behave like it’s should as far as I am concerned. It is seamless.
    I appreciate it event more now that I had to deal with a complicated Excel sheet in windows last week and could not for the life of me display correctly the information I needed to read.
    That was really confusing. I first blamed it on my Windows being a virtual machine and then found this thread among others.

    I am baffled at this situation, and since I now need to deal with some excel sheets in Windows due to macros, I too would appreciate Microsoft fix this.

    Please don’t make it a Mac vs. PC argument, this is not the point.
