How to Apply Chart Layouts and Styles in Excel
An easy way to change the look and feel of a chart is by applying one of the built-in layouts or styles that are available in Excel.
Built-in chart layouts can quickly adjust the overall layout of a chart with different combinations of titles, labels, and chart orientations.
The selected layout is applied to the chart.
Built-in chart styles allow you to adjust the format of several chart elements all at once. Styles quickly change colors, shading, and other formatting properties.
If the style you want to use is already displayed in the gallery, there is no need to expand the menu, just select it.
You can maintain the general look of a style while updating just the colors to better suit your needs.
The new color set is applied to the chart.
