Grid Line Colors in MS Excel

Dennis Faas's picture

Although I find that the light gray color of the grid lines in MS Excel is just right for me, some folks have problems with it. Luckily, you can change the grid line color to something more suitable to your tastes.

Follow the steps below to change the color of the grid lines:

  1. Select Tools | Options from the main menu.
  2. On the View tab, find the Window option section.
  3. Choose a color from the Gridlines Color (Excel 2002, 2003) or Color (Excel 97, 2000) drop-down list.

You are now returned to your worksheet with grid lines the color of your liking.
