Selecting a Slide Layout
When you start a new presentation or add a new slide, Microsoft PowerPoint adds a slide with the default layout that seems to fit the context. If the layout of the current slide doesn’t meet your needs, you can change to another of the nine built-in layouts.
To select a slide layout:
- From the HOME tab, in the Slides group, click Layout. A gallery opens showing the layouts that can be applied to your current slide.
- Click on the desired layout to apply the format to the current slide.
