Are you working on a PowerPoint presentation and want to insert a new slide? By default, chances are you will get a slide which has a title at the top, and a big box below that in which you can add your bullet points.
The default layout is what we call “Title and Content”, but there are many others you can choose from. For example:
- Title Slide (the first slide you see when you create a new presentation)
- Section Header
- Two Content
- Title Only
- Content with Caption
- Picture with Caption
To create a new slide with one of these layouts, simply click on the bottom half of the “New Slide” button on the “Home” tab in PowerPoint.
A small menu will appear with pictures of what each layout looks like. Simply click on the layout you like and it will be inserted into your document.
Now if you want to change the layout of an existing slide:
1) Click on the slide that you want to change
2) On the “Home” tab, just to the right of the new slide button you will see one called “Layout” – click on that
3) From the menu that appears, select the layout that you want
Now your presentation will have a bit of variety!
‘till next time!
