    Have gridlines appear around mouse cursor in Excel

    In Excel the gridlines clutter up the look of the screen. But they are very
    useful in knowing where to click to make changes and select cells. I would
    like to have the gridlines be invisible except in a floating area around the
    mouse cursor.

    Be careful what you ask for. This puts grid lines and borders around
    whatever the mouse selects.
    tools>options>view>gridlines>uncheck
    right click sheet tab>view code>insert this

    Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
    Cells.Borders.LineStyle = xlNone
    With Selection
    .Borders.LineStyle = xlContinuous
    .BorderAround ColorIndex:=3, Weight:=xlThick
    End With
    End Sub
