Changing the background of a slide

A presentation can have multiple slide masters, so the need for modifying slide backgrounds should be an exception. See Chapter 2 for details about using slide masters.

Applying a background to a slide master or to individual slides is no different from filling the area of a shape. See Chapter 6 (Formatting Graphic Objects) for details.

To change the background for a slide:

  1. Switch to Normal view (click the tab in the main work area or select View > Normal in the menu bar).
  2. Select the slide you want to change.
  3. Select Format > Page from the menu bar, or right-click and choose Page Setup from the pop‑up menu to open the Page Setup dialog. Choose the Background tab.
  4. Follow the instructions in Formatting areas in Chapter 6.
  5. Click OK to save the changes. A pop-up dialog (shown below) asks if you want to change the background on all slides. To change only the selected slide, click No.
