First I think you are referring to rows as columns and to columns as rows (row E, row F are columns not rows), that makes it difficult to understand.
In order to make the cursor jump to the next cell you want, select ALL CELLS that should receive values from scanner, right Click>Format Cells, then in protection tab you have to clear the Locked checkbox.
Then, from Review tab in ribbon, Protect the sheet with the option to Select Only UNLOCKED cells. This way, the cursor will move only in the ranges you have unlocked, in the order set by the excel option to "Move Right" or "Move Down"
