Add color and design to my slides
You’re not a professional designer but you want your presentation to look like you are – ‘themes’ do all that for you – you just pick one and go!
When you open PowerPoint, you’ll see the built-in, colorful slide designs (known as ‘themes’) that you can apply to your presentations.
Choose a theme when you open PowerPoint
Pick a theme.
Tip These built-in themes are great for widescreen (16:9) and standard screen (4:3) presentations. To change the screen size, see Change the slide size to standard or widescreen.
Choose a color variation, and then click Create.
Change the theme or variant of your presentation
If you change your mind, you can always change the theme or variant later on the Design tab.
On the Design tab, pick a theme with the colors, fonts, and effects that you like.
Tip To preview how the current slide looks with a theme applied, rest your pointer over the thumbnail of each theme.
To apply a different color variation of a particular theme, in the Variants group, pick a variant.
