Modify PowerPoint theme elements to mix and match colors and fonts. Learn all about using the PowerPoint modify theme feature here.
Let's say you really like the style of a theme, but you'd like to experiment with different color schemes. That's not a problem: You can mix and match colors, fonts, and effects to create a unique look for your presentation. If it still doesn't look exactly right, you can customize the theme any way you want.
If you're new to PowerPoint, you may want to review our lesson on Applying Themes to learn the basics of using themes.

If you don't like the colors of a particular theme, it's easy to apply new theme colors; everything else about the theme will remain unchanged.
Sometimes you might not like every color included in a set of theme colors. It's easy to change some or all of the colors to suit your needs.
With some presentations, you may not notice a significant difference when changing the theme colors. For example, a textured background will not change when theme colors are changed. When trying different theme colors, it's best to select a slide that uses several colors to see how the new theme colors will affect your presentation.
