How to Use Themes in PowerPoint

PowerPoint Themes

A theme is a set of unified design elements that you can apply to a presentation to give it a consistent look and feel. Changing the theme changes the slide background, the font colors and styles, the slide layouts, and the effects on graphics.

Apply a Theme

  1. Click the Design tab.
  2. Click the More button in the Themes group.

    Small thumbnails appear for each theme, showing off the fonts, colors, and designs they use.

  3. Select a theme.

    Preview a theme by hovering over it in the menu.

    Themes

    Each theme also includes a few variants that keep the basic look of a theme but change some of the colors and effects.

  4. If necessary, expand the Variants button on the Design tab.
  5. Select a variant of the theme.

Changing the theme affects pretty much everything about your presentation. It changes the slide background, the font colors and styles, the slide layouts, and even the effects on graphics.
