I just installed resharper and now when I do a find, the highlighting doesn't seem to work.  It probably actually works, but the background color isn't different than regular code.  How do I change this?

I found a resharper article that said go to options->font but that doesn't seem to exist.

I found a visual studio article that said go to: Tools -> Options -> Fonts and Colors -> Find Highlight (Extension), but I don't have that option either.

Tools -> Options -> Environment -> Fonts and Colors

If you are on Visual Studio Express however, many of the Options are not available. I cannot tell you if this one is part of the list or not, but I would be surprised if it was not, it is available on the simplest of the different default settings in the Pro version.

Sorry, I wasn't clear.
I am looking in Tools->Options->Environment->Fonts and Colors.
I don't have the option "Find Highlight (Extension)"

It is there in my Visual Studio 2010 Professional edition.

If you have the Express edition, as I told you before, some options might be missing. If you use earlier versions, maybe it is missing too.

Otherwise, since Resharper installs into Visual Studio, it might have changed your environment. I have seen many add-ins, even from the most reputable vendors, that make changes like that without asking you before making them.

I checked in a preview version of Ultimate we have were I give my training today, and it is there.

My bet is thus that since Resharper takes controls of a few things in the editor, it also modified the Options so that you cannot override what it is doing.
