Slide Master and Slide Layouts: Duplicate, Rename, and Edit Slide Layouts in PowerPoint

All slides within PowerPoint are based on one of the available Slide Layouts. These layouts can be chosen when you add a new slide or you can even change the layout of your existing slides. Both these options are accessible from the Home tab of the Ribbon. While these available layouts seem to cover most types of slides, you may sometimes want to create a new layout based on your individual requirements. That’s when you will want to know how you can duplicate, rename, and edit existing Slide Layouts.

To learn more, choose your version of PowerPoint. If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use.
