Slide Layouts in PowerPoint: Overview

            Slide layouts in PowerPoint determine which placeholders appear in a slide and where they are placed. If you are not happy with the layout of the placeholders in your slide, you can apply a new slide layout. When you apply a new slide layout, you determine which placeholders appear in the slide. You can also reset your currently selected slide’s layout back to its default to reset its placeholders, if desired.

            To apply or change slide layouts in PowerPoint, select the slide to which you want to apply a new slide layout. You can then click the “Home” tab in the Ribbon. Then click the “Slide Layout” button in the “Slides” button group. In the drop-down menu that appears, click the slide layout that you want to apply to the slide.
