Change Color Theme of Multiple Slides

Reader rating: 5 out of 10


Do you have multiple slides to change the color theme for?

This How-To Article shows you how to change the color theme of several slides at once.

Change Color Theme of Multiple Slides

1. Click the "View" menu and select "Slide Sorter".

2. Hold down the SHIFT key on the keyboard, and click each slide which you would like to modify the color theme for.

Note: PowerPoint will only let you select slides which are in order. (Example: you can not select slides 1, 3, 7, and 10. You can, however, select 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.) If the slides are not in order, then you will need to manually change each slide (or groups of slides which are in order).

3. Click the Format menu and select "Slide Color Scheme". (If you are using Microsoft Word 2002, then select "Background...". The dialog box will be different than the one described below.)

4. Select the scheme you would like to use, and click the "Apply" button to apply the scheme to all of the selected slides.

Tip: You can also click the "Apply to All" button to apply the scheme to all of the slides in your presentation.

Tip: If you would like to customize the scheme, click the "Custom" tab and customize the colors of the scheme.
