How to Get Rid of a Text Box Border in Excel 2013


Using borders and gridlines in your spreadsheet can provide a clean and simple way to separate information in different cells. But adding borders to your cells is not the same as adding a border to a text box, as Excel treats those two objects a little differently.

A text box in Excel 2013 is its own entity in your spreadsheet and, as such, it has its own formatting and styles. By default, this will include a border around the text box. But that border may nto fit in with the styling of the rest of your data, and you might be looking for a way to delete that border. Our guide below will show you how to find the text box border settings in excel 2013 so that you can remove a border from a selected text box.

Here is how to remove a border from a text box in Excel 2013 –

  2. Click the text box once to select it.
  3. Click the Format tab at the top of the window, under Drawing Tools.
