Default Blue and black arrows in Filters

Hi all

I have a colleague with poor colour vision and he finds the blue/black (blue
meaning a filter is applied) arrows on the filters (on auto filters)
difficult to distinguish. Is there a way to change the colours to something
brighter.

I have looked in the data filter options but no joy. Any help appreciated
(even if the answer is no!)

kind regards

Rexmann

Is the display set toits brightest setting? Perhaps your colleague needs a
new display.

I'm not aware of a way to change the color of the autofilter.

I think that setting is buried with others in Themes in the Windows Control
Panel, rather than being an Excel setting.
