Microsoft 365 - Word - Find & Replace Highlighter Colour

Copper Contributor



In the desktop app of Microsoft Word, is there a way to change the highlight colour from grey to something more easily seen when using Find and Replace?

Are you referring to the selection color seen when you click the Find Next button in the Find & Replace dialog box? As far as I know, you can't change that color from within Word.


However, it is possible to set the selection color in Word for Windows to black if you edit the Windows registry.




Thank you. Yes, I was talking about the first paragraph. That's disappointing that the colour can't be changed.
