How to change the color of sheet tab in Excel

In this tutorial we’ll learn how to change the color of the sheet tabs in Excel. So, let’s consider this dataset above. In this data set, there are 10 students, identified by their Student Names, and 4 subjects (identified as Subject 1, Subject 2, Subject 3, and Subject 4). The full marks for each subject is 100 and the students having marks less than 50 in any of the subjects will be considered as failed and the rest of the students will be treated as successful.

In Microsoft Excel, a sheet refers to a single page within a workbook. Each sheet consists of a grid of cells that are arranged in rows and columns, and can contain various types of data, such as text, numbers, formulas, and charts. Using different colors for sheet tabs in Excel can provide several benefits, including:

Visual organization: Using different colors for sheet tabs can help you visually organize your workbook, making it easier to find and navigate between sheets.

Easy identification: When you have multiple sheets with similar names, using different colors can make it easier to quickly identify the sheet you need.

Highlight important information: You can use different colors to highlight important sheets or information within a sheet, making it easier to quickly locate critical data.

Step 1 – Right click on the Sheet Tab

– In an opened Excel sheet, locate the sheet tab at the bottom left corner of the sheet.
– Select the sheet name you want to assign a color.
– Right click on the sheet tab to open a context menu.

Step 2 – Click on the tab color option

– As you click on the tab color option, a color palette will open.

Step 3 – Choose the color from the palette

– Now select an appropriate color from the color palette. The color of the sheet tab will be changed as per your requirements.
– We’ll use the same procedure to change the colors of all sheets. We’ll use Yellow color for total students, Green for successful students and Red for failed students as shown above.
