How to Create Customized Themes for Microsoft PowerPoint Presentations

Microsoft PowerPoint design themes are a great way to give your presentation a professional look. Themes make up the design features of a presentation, such as colors, fonts and layout. Microsoft PowerPoint does provide some built-in templates, but there may be times when you want to customize the design of your presentation to match the needs or mood of the audience. Follow the steps below to create a custom PowerPoint theme that you can use time and again.


Open Microsoft PowerPoint and create a new presentation.

PowerPoint presentation themes

Apply the colors, fonts and design elements you wish to use as your template. The "Home" tab gives you options for changing fonts and font colors. You can move text boxes around by clicking the box and dragging it to the location you would like it to appear. The "Design" tab offers built-in templates for themes which you can edit to your liking. Just click on "Colors" or "Fonts" (to the right of the template thumbnails) for more options.

Once you have your PowerPoint theme customized to your liking, select the "Design" tab from the top menu.

Click on the "More" symbol (down arrow with a line over the top). This brings up more options.

Choose "Save Current Theme" at the bottom of the drop-down menu.

Name the file and click "save" as "Office Theme" type.

The next time you want to use this theme, open PowerPoint, click on the "Design" tab and click on the "more" button again. The options will now list a "Custom" category.

Find the custom theme you would like to use. If you're not sure which one you want, hover your mouse over the thumbnails to see the file name.
