Change It Up

Do you use MS PowerPoint’s design templates? You know – the cool backgrounds that PowerPoint offers ready-made that can really help brighten up a presentation.

If you’re like me, you tend to have a hard time deciding which one to use and often change your mind several times while working on the presentation. During all the mind changing, do you ever wish for a quick and easy way to make the change?

Well, I can’t give you a shortcut through the actual decision process, but I can give you double-click quick access into the design template list.

With your presentation open on the screen, take a look at the status bar (at the bottom).

If you take a careful look, you’ll see the current design template name listed.

Double click the design template name.

Poof!

Instantly you’ll find that the design template list will open. (A window will open in older versions of PowerPoint and in the Slide Design Task Pane in newer versions).

Of course, this doesn’t put a stop to our endless mind changing behavior but, it at least speeds the process up!
