Changing the Theme of a Presentation

 

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:

  1. Open your presentation in Drive, as you normally would.
  2. Click Theme on the toolbar at the top of the screen. Presentation displays the Choose a Theme dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
  3. Figure 1. The Choose a Theme dialog box.

  4. Scroll through the list of available themes and click the one you want to use.
  5. Use the Slide Size drop-down list to select the size that should be used for your slides.
  6. Click OK.

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.
