How to select all the embedded charts on the worksheet

Excel 2016 2013 2010 2007 2003
If you need to select all objects embedded into the worksheet, e.g., select all charts to adjust their size, press Ctrl+G and click the Special button or use Ctrl to select objects individually.

Do one of the following:

  • On the Home tab, in the Editing group, click Find & Select:
    Find & Select in Excel 365

    Then click Go To...:

    Go To in Excel 365
  • Press Ctrl+G.

In the Go To dialog box, click the Special button:

Go To dilog box in Excel 365

In the Go To Special dialog box, select Objects:

Go To Special in Excel 365

Excel will select all objects on the sheet, not just the charts.

Another option is to select each chart individually. Hold down the Ctrl key and then click all of your charts to select them. This may be easier if you set the Zoom percent to a small number.
