If you create a slide design (theme) and you want to save it as a template (.potx file), simply do the following:

  1. Open the presentation that contains the slide design (theme) that you want to save as a template.

  2. File > Save As.

  3. In the Save As dialog box, in the File name box, type a name for the template.

  4. In the Save as type list, click PowerPoint Template, and then click Save.

    Note:  Themes are not the same thing as TEMPLATES in powerpoint. Themes are made up of cohesive colors, fonts, and effects such as, shadows or reflections – all arranged in a slide design. TEMPLATES include themes, but they also contain instructions in placeholders suggesting what to insert and what types of information the user of the template might want to include.
