Which colors does Excel make
available on the Font Color gallery?
You can choose from more than 60 different font colors on the Font Color gallery
(Figure 1– 36). Your Font Color gallery may have more or fewer colors, depending
on color settings of your operating system. The Theme Colors area includes colors
that are included in the current workbook’s theme.

Click Dark Blue, Text 2 (column 4,

Why does the Font Color button
change after I select the new font
color?
When you choose a color on the
Font Color gallery, Excel changes the
Font Color button (Home tab | Font
group) to the chosen color. Thus,
to change the font color of the cell
entry in another cell to the same
color, you need only to select the
cell and then click the Font Color
button (Home tab | Font group).
