Slide Master and Slide Layouts: Change Background Styles in the Slide Master in PowerPoint

In PowerPoint, the Slide Master influences the layout and look of all slides in your presentation. Make changes to the Slide Master and those changes reflect on your presentation slides. For example, you can apply another Background Style so that all Slide Layouts and slides in your presentation use this changed slide background.
