Black and White Blues in Excel

Black and white blues in Excel can be a very frustrating thing to deal with. There are a few things that can cause this problem, and unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Here are a few things to try if you're experiencing black and white blues in Excel:

  1. Make sure your monitor is set to at least 16-bit color. To do this in Windows, go to Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Display. Under Settings, click Advanced Settings. Under Color Quality, select Highest (32 bit). If you're using a Mac, go to System Preferences > Displays. Click the Display tab. Under Color Depth.
  2. Update your video drivers. This can be done by going to the website of your video card manufacturer and downloading the latest drivers for your specific model of video card.
  3. If you're using an LCD monitor, make sure the refresh rate is set to at least 60 Hz. To do this in Windows, go to Control Panel>>Personalization >>Display >>Screen Resolution >>Advanced Settings >>Monitor >>Screen Refresh Rate


4. If you're still having trouble, try changing the resolution of your monitor. To do this in Windows, go to Control Panel Appearance and Personalization Display Screen Resolution . Under Resolution, move the slider to a lower resolution and click Apply.
