cursor not placing properly and not highlighting text to edit

Occasional Visitor

MS Office apps recently not functioning properly.  Most noticeable is in Excel when I try to place the cursor inside an already typed sentence in order to edit some text, the cursor automatically goes to the end of the sentence.  I have to back space to get to the part of the text that I want to change.  Also, I cannot highlight text to edit the text.  If I save the document then attempt to edit, it works only once and then does not work again.  Also noticed the same thing in Outlook just started to happen.  It does not happen in other non-MS apps i.e. I can use my Google Chrome browser with no issues when editing and highlighting text so it must be just a MS Office issue.  Any suggestions?
