Excel: the Cursor should have a feature to highlight the field that is selected.
Excel: the Cursor should have a feature to highlight the field that is selected. As I review my doc, the cursor outlines the cell with green...making it hard to focus/isolate your eyes on one the cell. If the program allowed you to change the option to temporary highlight the cell, as the cursor moves, it would be easier to review docs. Just a thought. Thanks!

Am I wrong? I've been using Excel for a long time albeit not every day and I clearly remember cells that met the Find criteria highlighted in grey. This light green outline is almost impossible to see. This seems like a no brainer.
This problem has been around for a LONG time. I do not believe Microsoft is interested in this change. Maybe they are in bed with a company that sells the download to add this feature!!!!!
We need a way to do this without using macros or Visual Basic scripts.
- Change the current cell highlight color.
- Enable highlighting the row and column of the current cell.
This simple enhancement will greatly improve productivity be eliminating this one source of annoying and stupid errors.
You can look on the web for instructions on how to change the highlight for the current cell. There are dozens of forums asking this, and some have a hundred "I had this question too".
Yes we can do it with a macro. But because of the danger of malware many of us are prohibited from sharing or emailing spreadsheets that include macros. And even if we could share them, the person we are sharing with might be stuck with security settings that prohibit opening spreadsheets with macros.
We need to be able to have these features without having to add macros to the spreadsheet.

Cursor visibility is a serious and annoying problem that would be relatively easily corrected, and made user controllable. It has come up in many different posts. Agreed this is a problem.
