Excel 2010 used to almost immediately provide the search results for a given cell (or comment) string.
Recently (on 2 different PCs) it still provides the results, however, it takes longer and each cell's row & column is momentarily displayed in the upper left hand (row/column) box under the ribbon.

Is this due to a MS update or did I accidentally turn something on within Excel which is causing cells to be momentarily displayed?

Thanks in advance to all who reply.

Did you know Excel offers Filter by Selection?
Add the AutoFilter icon to the Quick Access Toolbar. Select a cell containing Apple, click AutoFilter, and you will get all rows with Apple

If I can find a way to do a 5 second video of my Excel screen during a search I'll try to attach it.
Thanks for your reply,
