Cells are highlighted in excel. When I look at the screen I can't see them. However, if I do a print preview, I can see them. How do I get them to show up on my screen?

re: I can't see them. However, if I do a print preview, I can see them.

What do you mean you can't see them?

Do you mean that you can't see the contents, you can't see the fill color, you can't see what?

Keep in mind that we can't see your spreadsheet from where we're sitting, so you need to be very specific when describing your issue.

When viewing the computer screen, can't see the highlights, but can see the contents of the cell. Can see the highlights in a print preview, and can see the highlights in a printed document.

Can you take the file to another computer and narrow it down to the file or the computer?

If you create a new file and highlight - I assume you mean fill - a cell, does it show?

Does it happen with every fill color?

I tried the way guided by you, but there's no effect. I still don't see the highlights.

Just for clarification - by highlight, you do mean Fill color right?

In MS Word highlight is a specific feature, similar to using a highlighter on a sheet of paper.

However, in Excel highlight (as per the Excel Help files) can mean cell fill colors, borders, font colors, tracking changes, etc.

Which of these specific items are you having trouble with?
