Each highlighted word will cycle through three slightly different highlight colors to help differentiate between each highlighted word.

Optionally: 1) Keybind the command via "Tools->Options->Environment->Keyboard" and add a binding for "Edit.HighlightWord" 2) Customize highlighting colors via "Tools->Options->Environment->Fonts and Colors" and modify the "StickyHighlight" color entries.
