How can we improve Excel for Mac?

CHANGE ATTRIBUTES OF THE CURSOR CELL

I have just started using Excel 2016 on my Mac and find it extremely difficult to locate the position the cursor on the screen. It is an age thing and the eyes are going! I would like to be able to adjust the attributes of the Cursor Cell by:
(1) Changing the Background Colour of the Cursor Cell and/or
(2) Changing the Thickness of Border around the Cursor Cell and/or
(3) Change the Colour of the Border of the Cursor Cell.

I make the distinction between the Cursor Cell - the Actual Position of the Cursor on the Screen as this may not be the Active Cell.

    Row\column cross highlighting option would also be of use for some use cases.

    i also have this problem, would it be that hard to make the cell blink or change the back ground colour?

    Thank you, Dave, for asking for this. When I do a Ctrl-F to find data in my spreadsheet, I can't see where the search lands. Very frustrating.
