Change Default Theme in PowerPoint 2007

When you create a PowerPoint presentation do you almost always use the same design theme? Maybe one with your company logo or one that simply has elements you use a lot?

If this is you then you’ve got to be tired of going to the Design tab the moment you start work on a new presentation only to choose the same theme every time.

Wouldn’t it just be easier if we could change the default theme from the Office Theme to the one you actually use?

Why yes it would… good idea.

So here’s how to make that particular change.

We start with the Design tab.

Locate the theme that you’re choosing to be the new default.


Right-click on the theme and choose Set as Default Theme.

That’s it, it’s a done deal. Next time you start a new presentation you’ll be able to skip the theme switching and get right to work.
