Removing a Chart’s “Oops”

Removing a Chart’s “Oops”

Work with charts in MS Excel? Ever find yourself looking at a useless legend? You know, one that was created by default, but since you only have one data series, it’s completely unnecessary.

How do you get rid of it?

You could right click on the chart, go back to the Chart Options step and uncheck the legend option.

Or, you could simply select the legend (click on it) and hit the Delete key.

Voila! Bye-bye legend!

To tell the truth, you can do this with many elements in an Excel chart, including backgrounds, an axis, etc.

Now, that’s what I call an efficient way to get rid of a few chart “oopsies!”
