MS Excel: Freeze panes in Excel 2011 for Mac

Question: In Microsoft Excel 2011 for Mac, I have a spreadsheet with column headings. I need a way to scroll down the rows, but still see the column headings. How can I do this?

Answer: If you need to see the column headings even after scrolling, you could try freezing the top row in Excel. To do this, open your Excel spreadsheet.

Select the Layout tab from the toolbar at the top of the screen. Click on the Freeze Panes button and click on the Freeze Top Row option in the popup menu.

Now when you scroll down, you should still continue to see the column headings.
