When PowerPoint 2013 is launched, do you see an empty presentation with just one slide? This template influences the default look that PowerPoint provides — the first slide typically has placeholders for the slide’s title and subtitle. The text typed within these placeholders shows up in black over a white slide background. Although this default look works most of the time, you don’t have to stick with these defaults. You can easily change the default look to something else — for example, 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 2013.
