You can change the background color of a cell in the Format Cells dialogue box. Select Format >Cells from the main menu. In the resulting dialogue box choose the Patterns tab. Select the color you prefer and click on OK. You may also choose the fill color icon from the formating toolbar.

Click on Format, then Cells, then click on the Patterns tab. From there, just pick the color that you want to use and hit OK.

You have more than one option. The one that works in every version of excel is: Selec the cells, press ctrl and 1 keys. Then select the texture or color

Firstly, you need to select the cells on which you need to apply color (do this by clicking and dragging your pointer over cells). Then look in the Main/"Home" toolbar. The icon which changes cell color is to the right of the icon which has a picture of a bucket.
