When launched, you will notice that PowerPoint opens with an empty presentation of just one slide. Typically, you will find placeholders for the slide’s title and subtitle here. Any text you type within these placeholders shows up in black over a white slide background. This is the default look that PowerPoint provides — but you don’t have to use this default look all the time. You can change this look to something else — for example, do you want to use your custom PowerPoint template or Theme as the default? Or even any of the other templates / Themes built within PowerPoint.

Learn how to change the default template or Theme in PowerPoint 2010.
