Solid Fills for Slide Backgrounds in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

PowerPoint’s Slide Backgrounds can be filled with a solid color, a gradient, a texture or a picture, or even one of PowerPoint’s built-in patterns. We explored a generic walkthrough on changing the Slide Background in our Format Slide Background in PowerPoint 2016 tutorial. This tutorial explores how you can use a solid color as the fill for your Slide Background — solid color fills have the advantage of showing a large expanse in just one color. This does keep the slide uncluttered and draws the audience’s attention away from the background to the foreground elements — and that’s a good thing! Unless you use a bright orange, a fluorescent yellow or some other striking color as a background for your slide! So do choose your colors with caution – neutral colors such as white, grey, black, blue, and green always work better.
