Do you like the default locations where PowerPoint places your axes’ labels? Yes, we do believe that the defaults do work best most of the time because audiences expect these labels to exist at these familiar locations. However, there may be times when you probably don’t even need labels for your axes — or you may want them placed in another location so that your charts look cleaner. Whatever your motive may be, it is indeed possible to change the position of axis labels vis-à-vis the axis. For more explanation, refer to the following links that provide more details depending upon the version of PowerPoint you may be using:
