How to Double Underline in Google Sheets

The double underline was a feature that was previously not available in Google Sheets.

This was disappointing to many Microsoft Excel users who were used to using this feature. However, Google Sheets now has that feature, which means that if you are a fan of the double underline, it is easily doable now in sheets.

In this tutorial, I will show you how to double underline in Google Sheets

Double Underline

To double underline in Google Sheets, what you need to do is change the border style to the double underline, and then you can add a border to a cell and the line will show double.

Here is how this is done:

1. First, in the top toolbar menu, select Borders

Closing Thoughts

This is just one border-style option. In Google Sheets, there are many other options such as dashed lines or bold lines.

After you have learned double underlines, try playing with a few of the other options as well.
