I need a formula that will produce the word "Yes" or "No" in the Match column if all the cells in a row of 4 columns match

Example

Column 1     Column2     Column3     Column4     Match
Apple            Apple          Orange         Apple          NO
Banana         Banana      Banana         Banana       YES

I selected this answer, because it gave me the flexibilty to compare columns that were not all next to each other.

Thank you all for your input.
