Default Selected cells show up as very light gray? Can I darken?

Excel 2007 - When I drag the mouse across the cells I select, they appear in
a very light shade of gray - as opposed to the way they showed up in 2003 in
a darker gray? Can I darken the default of the selection color without
touching the contrast buttons on my monitor? Don't want to change contrast
as it negatively affects other
programs.

Hi Louise,

This is a well known problem, but there is no good solution in Excel. You
can modify Window's display settings and I have heard that there may be an
add-in to correct this problem out there, but I don't know where.

If misery loves company, let me assure you, you are not alone!
