Every individual slide that you see within your PowerPoint deck may have its own unique content, but there’s so much consistency as far as the look of successive slides is considered. All slides typically have the same slide background, and also the same fonts. You really don’t have to do anything other than adding new slides and typing in your text. All the formatting is taken care of by some magical behind-the-scenes intelligence within PowerPoint. Also if you print notes pages or handouts from PowerPoint, you will find that these are also formatted to synchronize with the look of your slides. Ever wonder how you can control all this intelligence? Well, the answer is the Masters that are contained within every PowerPoint presentation.

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.
