x=1:54;
plot(x,y1,'k-+',x,y2,'b-*')
xlim([1 54]
xticklabel_rotate([1:54],90,D
xlabel('Sample 1')
ylabel('Sample 2')
How to reduce space between axis label and axis ticks, i,e., how to get axis label closer to axis.

x=1:54;
y1=cos(x);
y2=sin(x);
plot(x,y1,'k-+',x,y2,'b-*')
xlim([1 54])
xlabel('Sample 1')
ylabel('Sample 2')
Get the axes handle by using the command below
axes_handle = gca; %gca stands for get current axes
Now I am looking up the current position of the xlabel.
axes_handle.XLabel.Position
ans = 1×3
27.5000 -1.1409 -1.0000
The position in the x, y, and z-direction are 0.5, -0.0705, and 0, respectively.
Now, change the second value in the array. This will change the vertical position.
axes_handle.XLabel.Position = [27.5 -1.10 -1];
axes_handle.YLabel.Position
ans = 1×3
-3.1054 0.0000 -1.0000
Now, let's change the first value in the position array to move the ylabel horizontally.
axes_handle.YLabel.Position = [-2.6 0 -1];
