Afaik the only way to highlight a value in a listbox is to select it.

I do not think,

If it were possible I would not do that as it would confuse the user

Maybe create a one-column straight table, and highlight it there.  And, better to use a different color than the "selected green" to avoid confusion.

Like Michael suggested, that is the way you can fake a listbox using a straight table and still retain the functionality of a list box with the bonus of additional formatting that a straight table offers. i remember seeing examples here on community. you may want to search. i will post the link if i find it.

You could do something like this ... displaying a Text Box above the List Box in the default green color with the first value from the List Box displayed ...

In this case I used =MinString(Regions) - but that could just as well be =FirstSortedValue(....)
