As PowerPoint is a design based program, backgrounds are effective ways of improving the aesthetics and readability of the slides. The Themes in PowerPoint help select the backgrounds by default, so every time you change the theme, the default background is set automatically. Theme, however, includes more than just backgrounds – so you can retain other aspects of the theme while changing the default background.

Given below are the steps to apply backgrounds in PowerPoint.

Step (1): In the Design ribbon, under the Background group click on the Background Styles command.

The graphics in the slide background can distract you from the actual content, in such cases you can hide the graphics and retain a plain background till you finish working on the content. To do this, select the slide and check the “Hide Background Graphics” checkbox.
