How can we improve Excel for Windows (Desktop Application)?

Add gradient fill as a cell fill option

The ability to fill a range of cells with a gradient color would allow for a greater level of creativity and a professional polished finished product.

    One and Two color gradient fills are already supported. To add one,

    1. Select the cell you want to fill
    2. Press Ctrl+1 to bring up the Format Cell dialog
    3. Click on the Fill tab, then “Fill Effects…”

    Now you can create your gradient.

    Hope that helps,
    Dan [MS]
