What is the default aspect ratio for PowerPoint slides, and can I change it?
The default aspect ratio is 16:9, but, if you regularly need to present using a 4:3 aspect ratio, you can
change the default size for your slides by following these steps. Apply the 4:3 aspect ratio to your slides (see
the section “Change the Slide Size,” later in this chapter). Click the Design tab, and click in the Themes
group. Click Save Current Theme . In the Save Current Theme dialog box, type the name of the theme, and
then click Save . In the Themes Gallery on the Design tab, right-click the saved theme. (When you point the
mouse at a theme in the gallery, a tip showing the theme name appears.) Click Set as Default Theme from
the menu that appears.
