Google Presentation is a handy program for creating, well, presentations. (That sounds almost too obvious, doesn't it?) When you first create a presentation (click the Create button in Drive and then choose Presentation), you are prompted to choose a theme for the presentation. The them determines, for lack of a better term, the "look and feel" of the slides that make up your presentation.
It is not unusual that during the development of your presentation you'll think better of your initial theme choice. If you want to change to a different theme, it is easy to do; just follow these steps:
Figure 1. The Choose a Theme dialog box.
At this point Presentation adjusts the colors, backgrounds, and layout of all your slides to reflect the theme you selected in step 3. If you look through the slides and determine that the new theme doesn't quite fit your needs, you can always repeat the steps and choose a different theme.
