When PowerPoint is launched, do you see an empty presentation with just one slide? This template influences the default look that PowerPoint provides. However, the first slide typically has placeholders for the slide’s title and subtitle. The text typed within these placeholders shows up in black over a white slide background. Although this default look works most of the time, you don’t have to stick with these defaults. You can easily change the default look to something else. For example, use your custom PowerPoint template or Theme as the default? Or even any of the other Templates/Themes built within PowerPoint.

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.
