How to install a custom PowerPoint theme quickly

286

When creating PowerPoint presentations for your brand, the default themes just won’t cut it. For a professional and on-brand PowerPoint presentation, create your own theme.

In this post, I’ll give you a quick rundown of how to install a custom theme in Powerpoint. This theme was created for a client of mine – so it’s already designed, and now we’re gonna install it.

1. Download your PowerPoint theme.

Download your theme from wherever it is located – it may be a bought theme or a custom design that was created just for you. You want to ensure that your files are .THMX or THMX files

Save it in your desired location. This can be practically anywhere on your computer.

Copy the path to folder in the windows explorer

Copy path to folder.

2. Install your PowerPoint theme

Now let’s jump into PowerPoint

Open the PowerPoint options by going to File > Options. In the Save Panel, find the box called Default Personal Templates. Paste your path to folder into the box beside it and then press OK.

Install your theme into PowerPoint

3. Use your template! (And check that all is working)

When you open a new presentation, click on new. By the templates, choose custom and now your templates are showing. Choose the one you would like to use and it opens a new presentation.

Open your template in PowerPoint.

You can go to the home tab and click on layout to see all the pages you can use.

You can also add new slide by clicking on new slide and choosing the layout you would like to add on the new slide.

Your PowerPoint template is now ready to use.

Your PowerPoint template is now installed and ready to use.
