How to make cell or cursor blink in Microsoft Excel

I have a large Microsoft Excel spreadsheet - that has quite a bit of different colors / fonts (conditional formatting). Sometimes, it's almost impossible to see my cursor on the screen (even the cells too). Can I somehow make the cursor / cell blink so I can see which one I'm working on? Anything would be helpful. Thank you.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you want to know what cell you are working on you can always look at the cell listed to the left of where you enter a function.  That might be easier due to the fact depending on where you cursor is in Excel it may be a thick white plus, or a thin black plus with arrow tips, a black plus nor arrow tips,,,

    Instead of using mouse cursor, the arrow keys behave somewhat differently when you are in in edit mode on excel sheet. It is better to use the arrow keys move the cursor around in the cell. Or if you know what cells are going to edit, make them color and after editing them, again make them as normal.

    The point is to make the cell where I'm working; either blink or change color so if I have to go to go to another tab or screen, when I go back it will be noticeable (blinking) the cell where I was working, particularly on a highly populated excel table.

    @JagTX1: according to the Microsoft forum, it's not possible. Some users have written some code to do it. You may want to check out this page

    @JagTX1, when there is not actively typing in Excel cell the "Name Box" shows the coordinates of the current cell.
