If I highlight something, such as a bunch of cells in Excel, the highlighted color shows as a light pinkish/purplish on my left monitor. However, when I move the window to the second monitor, the highlighted color is more whitish/blueish. On another computer, it's completely white.

What settings on the monitor would fix this? Or is it a Windows display setting?

Reset the color setting on all monitors to default. Or you can increase the contrast and color depth, reducing the brightness may help. It looks like the monitor issue not with the application or doc.
