Hello, I'm Christina Chiu, I'm a computer web specialist. And today, I'm going to show you how to label chart bins using Microsoft Excel. So, if we open our Microsoft Excel, here we have a sample chart ready. And it has names, Bob, Steve, Travis, and numbers, 10, 13, 14. So, to add labels to the chart bins of column A or column B, you simply insert Text Box into our chart here. So, we just go to insert a chart here, and we're going to call this label, names and call the bottom, ages. So, insert text box here and ages. So, now, we can just fix the look of this, change that there, that's smaller, make it here. Change the size of the chart box, close it. You can change the size of your chart box by hovering your mouse on the bottom corners, and so you see double arrows. Then, we can just move the actual chart around by moving it here and moving it a little bit up. And you know that the chart is selected, once you click on it and then, you see little circles on the corners. So, there you go, let's move that a little bit further up, and move the label further down. So that is how you label chart bins using Microsoft Excel. Thanks so much for your time, my name is Christina Chiu.
