How to set Background in Microsoft Excel

The background is a cover of a page. Background can be set to be a color and /or an image or clip art. A notice should be taken is that there is no background for the printout.

Here are procedures for setting a background

  • Open your excel program
  • On the menu, locate page layout menu and click
  • Click background
  • Select the source of your background image 
  • Select the picture from either of the three

Again with printing preview, the excel file will not display with a background.

Alternatively, you can insert the background in the form of clipart or picture then adjust their transparency. Also, one can insert an object in the header or footer.
