I switched from Excel 2013 (old computer) to Excel 2019 (new computer). The old computer was Windows 7 and the new computer is Windows 10.

 

In Excel, I can't change the color of text or the color of the background. A support rep had me run a repair app but it didn't work.

 

I have used Excel for 20 years and have never had this problem.

 

Thanking you in advance,

Bill
