When you insert a new shape on a slide in PowerPoint, by default it is filled with a solid color and an outline (or something else depending on the Theme your presentation is based on). These default shape attributes can be changed very easily in PowerPoint. But do remember that these changes are only limited to the presentation you are working on. If the presentation is not saved, you’ll lose the changes.

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.
