Free Icon Sites

Icons are the new "in" thing for visuals. In a world where you need to be neutral all the time, icons are a Godsend since they are neutral by nature. Another reason to use icons is because they look great in small sizes, and they also use fewer resources to display. The fact that they go well with contemporary flat and minimal design trends: that just gets you extra brownie points!

The Evolution of Office Themes
The Evolution of Office Themes

Evolution is an interesting concept because it's the change that's natural, logical, and involved. And although Themes (Office Themes) did not exist in their present form before Office 2007 for Windows, they did evolve from the humble PowerPoint template. And as you get deeper into how Themes work, you'll find that PowerPoint uses these Themes in amazing ways, and shares them with Word and Excel. That's the reason they are called Office Themes rather than PowerPoint Themes.

Reuse Slides Through Drag and Drop

We explored previously how reusing your existing slides can be a great help since it saves so much of your time. While bringing up the Reuse Slides Task Pane that enables you to add selected slides to the active presentation, there is another easier and more intuitive way to reuse your slides. You can drag selected slides from the source presentation and drop them within the newer presentation. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to reuse slides through this drag and drop process within PowerPoint 2016 for Windows.
Inserting a New Slide

Like many other tasks, you do in PowerPoint, inserting a new slide can be done in multiple ways. You just need to find a way that works best for you -- the following steps show you how you can do this simple task in PowerPoint 2016.
Change Background Styles in the Slide Master

In PowerPoint 2016, the Slide Master influences the layout and look of all slides in your presentation. Make changes to the Slide Master and those changes reflect on your presentation slides. For example, you can apply another Background Style so that all Slide Layouts and slides in your presentation use this changed slide background. In this tutorial, we will explore how you can choose from any of the 12 available Background Styles to apply to the Slide Master.
