    How do I view color onscreen (it shows up in print view only)

    i have color formatting in some excel cells (ie format paint to change color
    of cells) and I can view the color in "print view" and it prints with color,
    but I can't view the color on screen. What's up? I had the same issue with
    powerpoint, but in powerpoint under "view" options I was able to select
    color, whereas black and white seemed to be previously selected.
    help!
    thanks
    JK

    Might be this problem........................

    The Windows High Contrast setting.

    Read this KB article.

    The fill color, the fill pattern, or the line color of a WordArt or
    AutoShape object in an Office document does not change
