Lesson 22. Giving Your Text a New Look > How You Can Make Text Look Different

How You Can Make Text Look Different

When you type text into a cell, Excel automatically formats it in the Arial font, which is readable, but not very fancy. You can change your text in the following ways, to improve its appearance or to set it apart from other text:

Font. A typeface; for example, Arial, Courier, or Times New Roman.

Font Style. For example, bold, italic, underline, or strikethrough.

Size. For example, 10-point, 12-point, or 20-point. (The higher the point size, the bigger the text is. There are approximately 72 points in an inch.)

Color. For example, Red, Magenta, or Cyan.

Alignment. For example, centered, left aligned, or right aligned within the cell.
