How to Fix When Fill Color Doesn't Display Properly in Excel

If you're experiencing issues with the fill color not displaying properly in Excel, there are a few things you can do to fix the problem.

  1. First, make sure that the cells you're trying to fill are actually selected. If they're not, the fill color won't show up.
  2. Next, check the fill color palette to see if the color you're trying to use is actually available. If it's not, you won't be able to use it.
  3. If both of those things are set up correctly and you're still having trouble, try restarting Excel. Sometimes the program just needs a fresh start in order to work properly.

Hopefully one of those solutions will fix the issue and you'll be able to use the fill color function in Excel without any problems.
