Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 Step by Step

Apply themes

SEE ALSO  For information about creating themes and custom theme elements, see “Create custom themes” in Chapter 12, “Create custom presentation elements.”

When you’re working in Normal view you can use the Live Preview feature to see how your presentation would look with a different theme applied. Simply point to any theme and pause. PowerPoint temporarily applies the selected formatting to the slide in the Slide pane. This makes it easy to try different themes and theme elements until you find the ones you want.


To apply a standard theme to a presentation 1. Display the presentation in Normal view.

2. On the Design tab, in the Themes group, click the More button (below the scroll arrows) to display the menu that includes the Office theme gallery and any custom templates on your computer. 3. Point to thumbnails in the gallery to display the theme names in tooltips and preview the effect of applying the themes to your presentation.

Choose a theme that enhances the content of your presentation

4. Click a theme thumbnail to apply that theme to the entire presentation.
