We can change our chart style in Microsoft excel by using the predefined chart styles in the design menu on our taskbar. The design menu automatically appears immediately we select a chart. This tutorial will teach us how to change our chart style.

  • We will create our chart by highlighting the table, then we will select insert in the menu section. We will select any chart type we want by click on the various shapes of chart displayed as icons in the Charts group. We can also use the recommended charts option, if we do not have an ideal chart in mind.
