If you would double-click any chart element in Excel 2010, a Format dialog box would appear. Do the same thing in Excel 2013 and a Task Pane appears on the right side of the screen. While the 2010 Format dialog box was labelled with many categories, the 2013 task pane is labelled with a series of icons.
My general rule: always start with the Column Chart icon - the best choices are often there.
- Each circled item shows different choices below.
