If you want to quickly move from one worksheet to another using the keyboard, you can do so by using Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDown. You use Ctrl+PgUp to move toward the first worksheet in the workbook, and Ctrl+PgDown to move toward the last. When you reach the first or last worksheet, Excel does not wrap to the opposite end of the workbook if you continue to press the same shortcut key.
