Q: Change default theme in Powerpoint 2016 This thread is locked from future replies


is there any way to change the default theme for new presentations in Powerpoint 2016 for Mac?

To better explain: I need a way to start every new presentation with my personal theme: in previous releases of Powerpoint there was "Save Theme as Default".



OK, in PPT 2016 you now have to take it one step further :-)

  1. Launch PPT
  2. Use File> New from Template
  3. Select your template to create a new presentation
  4. Go to the Design tab
  5. Expand the Themes Gallery
  6. Select the Save Current Theme command
  7. Name the Theme file & click Save
  8. In the Themes Gallery, right-click your thumbnail & select Set as Default Theme
Please mark HELPFUL or ANSWERED as appropriate to keep list as clean as possible ☺
