I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just create a suitable style.

When you apply the style to a cell(s), the fill colour will be applied with white text.

All I can think of at the moment is to right click on one the styles that are always visible in the ribbon
but you don't use
and "Modify" it

You can put a button on your "Quick Access Toolbar" that runs a macro that applies a style

Make the style and call it say "NormjatStyle1"
Just record yourself applying the style and you have the macro
It could as simple as
Selection.Style = "NormjatStyle1"
