Learn How To Use PowerPoint Slide Master | PowerPoint Tutorial

 

When creating your own PowerPoint presentation, it can be a tedious process to make individual changes on your slides if there are elements that need to be modified throughout an entire presentation. What do you do if you have to place the company logo on each and every slide of your presentation? Or change the font across the whole project at once? Going through it one slide at a time will take forever, and is a long, frustrating process, with a lot of room for errors. PowerPoint Slide Master drives the look of the entire presentation. 

What you can do, however, is to use the PowerPoint Slide Master feature in order to add or update your slides and have them automatically reflect in the entire presentation. PowerPoint Slide Master allows you to make changes in the presentation’s master slide, which means that you only need to change something there to change it throughout the presentation.
