Excel - Background Light Blue Grid

This is an aesthetic question.

At times, when I work on a spreadsheet - copy/cut, etc - there will be areas of the light blue background grid that disappear.

Is there a way to reformat this to appear.

Thank you.

Exp vg,

Couple of things you can try which is:-

1. View-->Gridlines-->Uncheck it and check it back Again...

2. Use-->Paint Brush..first select the cell which has grid lines..Then click on paint brush twice with in split of seconds..and then select the cells which are missing the gridlines..this will have gridlines back on them as the format from that cell will be copied to this one..

Or you can alternatively do the above thing by paste special-->formats from a blank Cell..
