CTRL + F: highlight the text and not only the cell ?

Occasional Visitor

Hi everyone,


I am working alot with Excel and I do many CTRL + F to find a word. However, I have alot of text in each of my cells, I was wondering if it was possible to ease my poor eyes by highlighting the exact word in the cell when doing CTRL + F and not just selecting the cell where the word is.


Do you know if this is possible ? 

I hope I was clear enough.

Have a good day everyone!

No, unfortunately Excel doesn't work that way.
