PowerPoint - Select and Apply Slide Layouts

Arrange slide content with different slide layouts to suit your taste and preference, or to improve the clarity and readability of the content.

  1. In Normal view, select the slide that you want to apply a layout to.

  2. Select Home > Layout, and then select the layout that you want.

    The layouts contain placeholders for text, videos, pictures, charts, shapes, clip art, a background, and more. The layouts also contain the formatting for those objects, like theme colors, fonts, and effects,.

  3. Select Home > Reset if you made layout changes you don't like, and want to revert to the original layout.

    Using Reset doesn't delete any content you've added.
