PowerPoint: How to Change All Slides At Once

With a presentation finished, deciding to make changes to the look of the slides can be a big headache if you don’t know the functions available in the application. For example, you can change all slides in PowerPoint at once.

This is possible thanks to a feature called “Slide Master”, little used but extremely efficient. Regardless of the number of changes you want to apply, activating this function guarantees that everything will be simpler and that you will have absolute control over your presentations.

How to use the “Master Slide” feature in PowerPoint?

The “Master Slide” feature can be applied at any time in a presentation. Whether it’s a finished file or one in progress, you can define whenever you want which of the slides will be the reference for your presentation. Here’s the step-by-step guide to do this.

Step 1. Open the presentation and click “View”.

Step 2. In the menu, select the “Master Slide” option.

Step 3. Keep the first slide that appears on the left side selected. When it is chosen, all changes applied to it are immediately applied to the other slides as well.

Step 4. You can edit any item on the main slide, but if you prefer, you can change everything completely by applying another theme. To do this, click on “Themes”. Then, just choose any of the available options.

Step 5. Still in “Themes”, you can change specific elements of the slides, such as colors. Click on “Colors” to display the change palette or on “Fonts” to modify the type of writing.

Ready! It’s that simple. You don’t need to manually make changes to every slide to modify a presentation. You can apply edits all at once and simplify your work.

How to use the “Slide Master” feature in Google Slides?

The “Slide Master” feature is not exclusive to PowerPoint. It is also available on Google Slides and the way of using it is very similar.

Step 1. Open the presentation and click on “Slide”.

Step 2. In the menu, select the “Master Slide” option.

Step 3. Keep the first slide that appears on the left side selected. When it is chosen, all changes applied to it are immediately applied to the other slides as well.

Step 4. You can edit any item on the main slide, but if you prefer, you can change everything completely by applying another theme. To do this, click on “Themes”. Then, just choose any of the available options.

Step 5. Still in “Themes”, you can change specific elements of the slides, such as colors. Click on “Colors” to display the change palette or on “Fonts” to modify the type of writing.

Both applications simplify users’ lives by offering this type of feature. Modifying presentations quickly is a smart way to save time and avoid unnecessary manual work. If you prefer, you can import completely different themes for the platforms and apply them at once.
