    How to restore cell gridlines lost after coloring the cell in Excel?

    While working on my Excel worksheet I sometimes color cells. When the cell is returned to white the gridlines for those specific cells are gone. How can I restore them?

    White is a color and it hides the gridlines. Highlight the cells you want to restore grid line after removing the color. On the "Home" tab, click on theme color and select "no fill" (the icon below the standard colour). Unhighlight the cells. Also you can go for None for the same purpose. it is totally dependent on you whether you wanted to use No Fill or none.
