It is very easy to insert a table in Google Docs. Once you have inserted the table, you can edit and format it in various ways.
In this article, we will be talking about one way in which you can format your tables: by changing the background color of the cells.
By default, the cells are transparent. This means that their color is the same as the color of your document. Since the color of Google Docs documents is generally white, the color of the cells is also generally white.
However, you can change the background color of the cells to any color you want.
You can choose from one of the many existing colors or you can create a custom color.
Changing the color of the cells of your table allows you to highlight certain cells (such as cells containing important information). It also makes your table look more interesting and therefore makes it engaging.
3 methods of changing the background color of cells in Google Docs.
- Using the background color icon in the table toolbar
- Right-clicking and opening Table properties
- Going to the Format menu and opening Table properties
