Listing or mark duplicates or multiple same entry in first column of an Excel list

Hello, I am totally new about excel questions and I couln't find the right solution here for my question. Therefore I opened my question here.

I have an Excel list with several columns. In the first column (=A2 until A3303) is on every row name and first name of users entered. This is a list of accounts which a user have and every user should have just one account, therefore the user should be only one time listed on the column and row, but there are duplicates or multiple entries of one user (name and firstname).
Cause the list is so much long (=3302 entries), I should know how to list or mark or whatever to get the duplicate and multiple entries.

I hope you have understood my problem, if not, please just ask. Would be great to get a solution for this.

Thanks in advance for your help.
