Highlight a cell only when selected

Occasional Visitor

Running Excel 365. Is there a way to highlight only the cell that is selected? When editing, have each cell highlight only when that cell is selected. All the cells seem to run together and makes it difficult to find the cell I'm working on. As I advance to the next cell, I want it to highlight only when it is selected. Possible??

@gtfoster Yes, possible. You need VBA macro to do that. Use below macro.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Cells.Interior.ColorIndex = 0
    Target.Interior.ColorIndex = 8
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
