Change the Theme in Google Sheets

Last week, I posted an article on changing the theme in Microsoft Excel. So I thought it would only make sense to follow that article up with an article on how to change the theme in Google Sheets as well.

What is the Theme in Google Sheets

Before we even get into how you would change the theme, let’s first talk about what it is.

In Google Sheets, the theme consists of:

  • The default font
  • The default text color
  • The default chart background color
  • Six accent colors
  • The default color for your hyperlinks

You can also view all these colors (except the default hyperlink color) by clicking the Text Color or Fill Color buttons in the Google Sheets toolbar.

Furthermore, you can view the default font by clicking the Font option in the toolbar.

How to Change the Theme

Now that you know what the theme is, let’s discuss how to change it.

To change the theme in Google Sheets, select Format and then Theme.

This will open the Themes panel on the right side of Google Sheets.

From here, you can select one of the many available theme presets. Plus, you can also create and customize your own theme by clicking on the Customize button. If you do, you can select the default font and set the individual colors to your liking.

Then once you have the theme set up the way you like it, you can click on Done. And of course, if you ever want to revert to the Standard theme, just go to Format Theme, and select the Standard theme.

And that is how you can change and customize the theme in Google Sheets.
