Sheets Help Needed
1
My sheets seems to have a setting I can't find to change. Depending on the cell I'm in I usually have to hit enter before I can enter a letter or number. When I move the cursor(blue block with Tony solid blue square in lower right corner) to a cell I have to hit enter before it accepts a keystroke. Sometimes it will take an entry without needing to hit enter. I've been all over the menus and cannot find a condition that I can toggle to fix this.

Am I missing something? This only started a few months ago. I've been using Sheets for many years on several Chromebooks. This is the first time I have experienced this and am stumped.

Try a quick browser reset in case a setting or extension is causing the issue.
If that fixes the issue add your extensions back 1 at a time so that if the problem reoccurs you know which extension caused it.
 
I'll think we have a sheets expert here, if not we'll move you to the proper forum.

I think this started when I started getting a prompt to use Control V for the paste function. It asked me to install this app, which I can't remember the name of, and wouldn't allow me to use the right click and choose paste technique.

I never  installed it but found the app, I think it was the same one, in my Chrome Apps library. I de-installed it but the problem hasn't gone away.

Did you perform the reset I suggested?

Not yet. I'm going in for a medical treatment today and am hesitant to do something I haven't done before.

As long as sync is on you have nothing to worry about.
If it wasn't on give it a few minutes before you do the reset.
Make sure your sync is turned on. Here's the process

Thank you for the hint. I will try it after I return and rest from my treatment so I will not be following up on this for some time. Maybe as much as a day or two. Please do not close this thread.
