Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best color for a PowerPoint presentation?

Blue is a popular background color, as it creates a calming effect in viewers. Black and white are common choices as they make it easy to create visual balance. Orange has been shown to promote energy and appetite. Dark slides should be contrasted with light text, and vice versa.  

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.

To change the background color of a slide to a darker color, hit the Design tab, select Background, choose Solid Fill, then pick the color you want from the gallery. If you want all of your slides to have a dark background, click on the Design tab, select Background, then Apply to All.
