I have not been able to determine how to change the cursor movement default in Excel.  As installed, the cursor moves down one cell with an "enter".  How do I change the global default to have the cursor remain in the current cell after a value has been entered?

File/Options/Advanced - uncheck After pressing Enter, move selection.

@Mike_Everhart 

 

There is a menu item for this problem in the Excel settings:

Translated from German:
File

Option
Advanced or Extended (im not sure)
[CheckBox] After pressing Enter, move selection
[DropDown] Down, Right, Up, Left
If the CheckBox is deactivated, the cursor remains on the current cell.

 

Inserted a picture with the settings display, is in German, but a picture says a thousand words ... don't forget to deactivate the check box.
