Create a Presentation from a Template

Using a template allows you to begin with a presentation that has already been designed and formatted so you can just insert the information. This saves you time and you will end up with a professionally designed presentation.

  1. Click the File tab.
    Create a New Presentation
  2. Select New.
  3. Type a category in the Search field or select one beneath it.
    Create a New Presentation
  4. Select a secondary template category to further narrow the search.
  5. Select a template.
    Create a New Presentation
  6. Click Create.

The presentation template is downloaded, and a new presentation using it opens in PowerPoint. You can fill in the placeholders, and delete the elements of a template that you don’t need.
