Gridlines - you cant see them
The gridlines are always light gray on white or white on gray. Its maddening that you cant see them. Its also one pixel wide. GIVE ME A SETTING for color. I want a black gridline not gray. I also want a setting for width.
Turns out you can do this already – Just head into File | Options | Advanced | Display options for this worksheet and then choose the gridline color.
Hope that helps,

That only changes it for the active sheet. There is no way to change the default for new sheets. I don't want to have to start every new file by going through a configuration routine. That's what default settings are for.
In Excel 2010, the automatic gridline colour was black. Now it's grey. Why? And how do I switch it back to black? All the grey is difficult to read and focus on when your vision is no longer as when you were 20.

If you are using 2010 or higher, there is a setting for gridline color. Go to File > Options > Advanced > scroll down to the section that says "Display options for this worksheet". You will see the gridline color change here. The only issue with this feature is that it only sets it for the worksheet. When you open a new Excel file, it's defaults back to the windows theme setting.
