How to Change Tab Color in Google Sheets

It is useful to differentiate tabs by coloring tabs in different kinds of colors. You can quickly tell what type of sheet you are working on even if you have multiple sheets in a file. We recommend that you use similar colors for a group of relevant tabs (e.g., coloring a revenue summary sheet in red and its back-data sheet in light red, and making the tab color of a cost sheet green, etc.)
