Man spends over 9 hours scrolling to bottom of Excel spreadsheet

A man from Oklahoma, USA posted a video online answering the question of how long it would take to manually scroll to the bottom of a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.

Hunter Hobbs said in his YouTube post that he took on the “the dumbest challenge ever that someone had to do” because he wondered how long it would take to get from the top of a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet to the bottom without using any keyboard shortcuts.


The video shows Hobbs pressing the down arrow key and scrolling through the 1,048,576 rows while sitting at his computer without breaks.

Hobbs reaches the bottom of the spreadsheet in 9 hours, 36 minutes, and 10 seconds.

The YouTuber said he wouldn’t encourage others to try to repeat his feat.

“I don’t recommend it at all,” he said. “Please don’t do it.”
