- [Nick] Welcome to PowerPoint Tips Weekly,…I'm Nick Brazzi.…When you create a PowerPoint presentation,…you start by choosing the theme…which determines the overall design of your slides,…the color palette, fonts, accent graphics and so on.…You may start with a blank theme or something…with a more interesting style.…In this week's PowerPoint Tips,…I want to talk about changing the theme…after you've done some work in your presentation.…So, I'm here in a presentation and I've done some work…in a very basic, sparse theme.…In the Home ribbon, I could add a new slide,…or I could even change the layout of individual slides…by going to this Slide Layout button.…
