To Change the Font Color of a Cell Entry
The next step is to change the color of the font in cells A1 and A2 to blue. Why? Changing the font color of
cell entries can help the text stand out more. The following steps change the font color of a cell entry.
1
Tap or click cell A1 and then tap or
click the Font Color arrow (HOME
tab | Font group) to display the
Font Color gallery.
If you are using a mouse, point to
‘Blue, Accent 1’ (column 5, row 1)
in the Theme Colors area of the
Font Color gallery to see a live
preview of the font color in the
active cell (Figure 1– 38).

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

Tap or click ‘Blue, Accent 1’
(column 5, row 1) in the Font
Color gallery to change the font

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 tap or click
the Font Color button (HOME tab |
Font group).

Repeat Steps 1 and 2 to apply Blue, Accent 1
(column 5, row 1) to cell A2.
