In Google Sheets formatting cells can be done in a number of ways. Learn all about formatting in Google Sheets here.
After you've added a lot of content to a spreadsheet, it can sometimes be difficult to view and read all of your information easily. Formatting allows you to customize the look and feel of your spreadsheet, making it easier to view and understand.
In this lesson, you'll learn how to modify the size, style, and color of text in your cells. You will also learn how to set text alignment and add borders and background colors to your cells.
Every cell in a new spreadsheet uses the same default formatting. As you begin to build a spreadsheet, you can customize the formatting to make your information easier to view and understand. In our example, we will be using a spreadsheet to plan and organize a garden plot.
Modifying the font size can help call attention to important cells and make them easier to read. In our example, we will be increasing the size of our header cells to help distinguish them from the rest of the spreadsheet.
Choosing a different font can help to further separate certain parts of your spreadsheet—like the header cells—from the rest of your information.
