Don't people do this every day?

I want to do something ridiculously simple in Excel that doesn't seem to be possible. Please tell me that's not true.

I want to have it so that when I move to a cell I am automatically able to edit that cell's contents.
This is on a Mac with Excel 2011.
Currently, I am editing a column of cells filled with text. I edit one cell, press enter to move to the one below it, then PRESS CTRL-U (equivalent of F2 on PC) OR DOUBLE CLICK, in order to be able to edit the next cell.
I want to carry on doing exactly what I am doing WITHOUT HAVING TO PRESS CTRL-U OR DOUBLE CLICKING. I just want to be able to edit straight away, every time.
I am not looking for any answer that involves macros etc. - I just want to tick a box.
Can this really be impossible?
