When you first enter information into a spreadsheet cell, it is vertically aligned near the bottom of the cell. If you adjust the height of the row in which the cell is located, this may not give the exact "look" that you want for the cell. Fortunately, Sheets allows you to modify where the cell contents appear vertically within the cell.
To adjust vertical alignment, select the cell (or cells) you want to change. Then click the Vertical Align tool on the toolbar. You'll see three options: Top, Middle, and Bottom. (See Figure 1.)
