Hi @Anne-Marie Colendich,

Just highlight the row by clicking the narrow grey placeholder at the left side of that row. It will highlight the entire row.

Then, you will see a tiny arrow appear when you hover over any cell in that row.

Clicking the arrow will pop up a menu where you can select background color:

I've performed this action, but for some reason the option change Cell Background still isn't showing. I do see the options for Insert/Remove etc. Any other thoughts for why this might be? The tables that have colors I need to change, are being copy/pasted from word and already contain a color -- However, I need to change the color it pastes in.
