    Topic 9: Changing the PowerPoint Color Themes

    Advertisement

    PowerPoint also provides many built-in color themes that you can apply separately from your choice of overall theme. For example, you can apply a theme that contains a background design you like, and then change the colors and fonts for it.

    To use a different color theme


    • On the Design tab (Slide Master tab if in Slide Master view), in the Themes group, click Colors ****on. A gallery of color themes opens.





    • Point to a color theme and see the preview on the slide.

    • Click the desired color theme.


    Note:
    To apply a different color theme to a slide master other than the default one, open Slide Master view (View tab, Slide Master ****on) and click the desired slide master. Otherwise, the color change will apply to all slides that use the default (first one listed in Slide Master view).
