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]
