Excel grouped worksheet tab color

Hi Experts,

How can I change the highlighted color of a grouped worksheet tab?

Now, when I group I think it is changing from white to grey,  though I have a hard time seeing that difference.
See attached pic.

I would like something like :
-) ungrouped tabs as, Black on White
-) & grouped tags as White on Black

There is no reason for subtlety here!
 Grouped worksheets tabs are grey? Grouped tabs are white.

Right-click all your tabs and choose a black tab color, it will be exactly the opposite of what you ask for, but it will offer the same contrast.

I don't think you can change the standard color for multiple selected sheets in Excel, even when youchange the color scheme, you won't get the result you need.
Grouped sheets are always showed as black text on white backgroud, and the activesheet is showed in bold font.

You can, if you want, change all the color of the sheets to something more contrasting with white, this will make it easier to identify the ones that are grouped.

Similar case happened before (2003), because the arrows of the filtered fields on a sheet become blue and the not filtered fields remain black, but it's hard for some people to easily tell the difference between those two... and there has never been a "fix" for it, since this is not actually a bug.

But anyway, let's see what the other experts may say about this...

Fayaz,  though not exactly what I was expecting,  this did the trick for automatting the highlighting of grouped worksheet tabs.
Hooray for  "Menu'File>>Options>>Colour Scheme = Black"  ! :)
