How to conditional format a checkbox based on if checked or not?

I am trying to conditional format a checkbox on a form based on if it is checked or not?

The condition format option in MS access 2013 does not have this option.

As Joe indicated, the checkbox does not support conditional formatting.  If you want to do something visual, you will need to find or make a graphic and stack the images then make the one you want to see visible.

CF is not available on a CheckBox - ever.

In a way, they are 'self CFing' ... either a check mark shows or not. You just can't add color ...

Pat basically repeated (agreed with) what I said, so it's not clear why she got the Accepted answer?

Actually, I answered the question.  I could ... have offered various solutions, but the OP made no hint of wanting one.  Also ... almost any solution, when applied to multiple check boxes ... probably is not worth the time ... which is another reason I did not initially suggest any solution,
