Office 365 - Excel 2016: Find feature no longer highlights text

Highlighted

I am currently searching a very large file for keywords and there is only a slight outline of the row number and cell meeting my search criteria.  Previously, the cell or word would be highlighted to easily identify them.  I am hoping the Find feature did not permanently stop highlighting text/cell. 

Is there a setting to change this?

To my knowledge there is no such setting. However, after Find All you may select all found cells in bottom frame (with Shift + arrow down or by mouse) - all of them will be highlighted. In addition, after the selection and without closing Find windows you may apply any format to all selected cells (style, or background colour, whatever).
