Change the default colour scheme in charts

It is possible to change the colours of each series so that it matches the colour scheme you need. However, every time you create a chart, Excel’s defaults are used which means you need to make all the changes again. You may want to change the defaults. For example the default chart may look like this. Note the colour scheme (1st series is always blue, then red then green then purple).
