How do I automaticlally create a polygon shape around multi points of lat longs in a shapefile and see it on the map

Sorry I am a newbie here. I am not a tech guru but we have lat longs of points (of meters), we have created a shapefile, I can see the multiple points on a map. How do we then automatically draw a shape (polygon, rectangle) around them all and color the area automatically? Basically creating a map view from a table containing lat / longs. What are the process steps to do this after the shapefile creation?

What licences should we have to enable this functioality if available?

You have a wide variety of shapes and colors to customize how your points look. enter image description here
