Starting a Presentation from a Template
Starting a Presentation from a Template
A template is a fi le that contains starter settings — and sometimes starter content — on
which you can base new presentations. Templates vary in their exact offerings but can
include sample slides, a background graphic, custom color and font themes, and custom
positioning for object placeholders.
The sample templates stored on your computer appear as tiles on the Start screen (Figure 2.1)
and on the New screen when you choose File
New, as in the preceding section. You can click
whichever one you want to use.
Only a few sample templates are stored on your hard disk because Microsoft assumes that
most people have an always-on Internet connection these days. When you are connected to
the Internet, you can access the complete Microsoft library of template fi les. Use the Search
box to search for templates in a particular category or with certain keywords associated
with them.
