How to Format a Table in PowerPoint?

While reading, presenting, or working with tables it is always more pleasing to see when everything is in place, is formatted, and follows a set style.

The first step is to “Right Click” on the table. In the right-click menu, click on the “Format Shape” option at the bottom.



In the “Format Shape” sidebar, click on the “Text Options” tab located at the top. There are three groups under the tab: “Text Fill & Outline”, “Text Effects”, and “Textbox”.
