When I open a spreadsheet now there are no fridlines. Previously I had solid gray gridlines and after fiddling with the settings I can now produce gray dotted gridlines. See attachment. How do I get default gray solid gridlines?

After hours of research online, I discovered the problem - the contrast brightness setting on my monitor. Problem solved.

Strange at it may sound - when you go to select the Grid Line Color, the top bar of the Color Box has a Color Square and says Automatic. Pick the color Red, just to follow this. Now, you will see the color Red in the Gridline Color selection. Select to change the color again, and you will see the same color square you saw before, and the word Automatic. The Color of the square did not change, and does not indicate the color being used. Click on the word Automatic, and you will get the Automatic setting, instead of the dotted gridlines that you get when you select a specific color (like Black). Good Luck.

Right on the money. Outstanding reply - I never would have figured this out and I have looked all over the internet for this information. Thanks.
