Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make the background dark in PowerPoint?

How can you change the color in your presentation without changing the design?

Find the Design tab, then select Variants, Colors, Customize Colors. You can then choose from 12 featured theme colors. To locate the exact shade you want, select More Colors. Once you make your selection, the basic design and layout of your presentation will stay the same but the elements will change their tone.
