Creating a New Default Chart Template

You can change Excel's rather bland default chart template, replacing it with one more to your liking. Here's how:

  1. Click a chart you've created that you'd like to use as a model for all future charts, then select Chart Type from the Chart menu.

  2. Click the Custom Types tab.

  3. Click Set as Default Chart.

  4. Enter a name and description for your custom chart type.

  5. Click OK.
