PowerPoint makes it easy to apply new theme effects, which can quickly change the appearance of shapes in your presentation.

  1. From the Design tab, click the drop-down arrow in the Variants group and select Effects.
  2. Select the desired theme effects.
  3. The presentation will update to show the new theme effects.

Applying new theme effects will change different shape styles from the Format tab when editing a shape or SmartArt graphic. It's important to note that this change will only apply to shapes using the Subtle Effect, Moderate Effect, and Intense Effect.
