In Word 2013, I have a table of many rows and columns

I elect 2 fields (2 middle columns in 2 different rows)

I want to change the background color, but do not see an option to do so

I see Table - Design, and Table Layout, but do not see a way to change the background color of the two cells I selected

What path do I take to get there ?

Thanks

I have Word 2010, but i don't believe this changed in 2013.

select the cells you wish to change, and right click.  From the pop up menu, select "Borders and Shading".

Select the shading Tab and then select the fill color you want to use.
