Table Cells: Table Style Options

Create a new table in PowerPoint and you’ll find that it already includes some sort of default formatting. More often than not, you’ll find that the table already has banded rows and the header row highlighted. While PowerPoint decides to turn on some of these Table Options, there are some that you must manually enable. All put together, you can play with 6 distinct options that let you control the way through which table elements can be made to stand apart.

To learn more, choose your version of PowerPoint. If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use.
