To clear a slicer filter in Excel, you can use one of the following methods:

Method 1: Clear Button on the Slicer

  1. Click on the Slicer: Click on any part of the slicer to make it active.
  2. Look for the Clear Filter button: Many slicers have a “Clear Filter” button. It’s usually a small ‘x’ icon or a “Clear Filter” text on the slicer. Click on it to remove all applied filters.

Method 2: Right-Click on the Slicer

  1. Right-Click on the Slicer: Right-click on the slicer that you want to clear.
  2. Choose “Clear Filter”: From the context menu, select the “Clear Filter” option. This will remove all filters applied through that slicer.

Method 3: Use the Slicer Settings

  1. Select the Slicer: Click on the slicer to select it.
  2. Go to Slicer Tools: If you’re in Excel 2013 or later, a “Slicer Tools” tab will appear on the ribbon. Click on it.
  3. Use the “Slicer Settings” option: Look for an option like “Slicer Settings” or “Report Connections” in the Slicer Tools tab. From there, you can clear the filter.

Method 4: Clear Filter in PivotTable (if applicable)

If your slicer is connected to a PivotTable, you can clear the filter directly from the PivotTable:

  1. Go to the PivotTable: Click on any cell within the connected PivotTable.
  2. Use the “Clear Filter” option: Depending on your Excel version, there might be an option to clear the filter directly from the PivotTable’s context menu or ribbon.

Choose the method that is most convenient based on your slicer type and Excel version.
