Histogram[RandomInteger[{1, 5}, {100}], BarStyle -> Red] if you wonder how you can find something like that in cases like Histogram, where the documentation is almost nonexistent: look at Options[Histogram] and then try the possible candidates. Once I found BarStyle, I found that this option is documented, but not mentioned in the documentation of Histogram... hth, albert
