Fix for missing Fill Colours

Excel won’t display the cell’s fill colours. The colour is there when I print out, but it doesn’t display on the screen. The file is OK when I view it on another computer. Is there a setting I need to change?

You need to change a Windows setting. Click Start, then click Control Panel, and open the Accessibility Options. Click the Display tab, and then click to clear the Use High Contrast checkbox. Click OK to close the Accessibility Options dialog box. You may need to restart Excel or your computer for the change to take effect.
