Default Active row and column header color

I have EXCEL 2000. A friend has the 2003 version. In his, the acitve col#
is orange and so is the active row name. Mine in just gray, and harder to
see. Is that a new feature? If not, how do I change mine. I need complete
instructions, please.

Thank you. Tony G

Tony

This would be a Windows OS Appearance issue not an Excel 2003 feature.

Right-click on desktop and PropertiesAppearanceAdvancedItemSelected Items.

Change the color there.

Note: this will be a global change for all selected items.

Alternative.......

Download Chip Pearson's ROWLINER add-in.

If this is a new feature in Excel 2003, how does one activate/change the
coloring?

Wouldn't it be great if you could because I've certainly never had a colour
scheme that included orange ...

Apologies. Guess I misunderstood.

I thought you stated in your post that it was "a new feature"

Quoted from that post......
