Q: In Excel, is there a way to click on a cell containing a hyperlink without triggering the hyperlink? (Surely my current method of clicking next to the cell and then using arrow keys cannot be the best method.)

A: Make the row height bigger or the column wider, then you can click in the white area of the cell to select it without triggering the hyperlink.
