Using Headers and Footers
If you want to remove some but not all the background objects from a single
slide, try this trick:
1. Hide the background graphics from the slide.
To hide a background object, choose Design Background Hide
Background Objects.
2. Call up the Slide Master by choosing View Presentation Views Slide
3. Hold down the Shift key and then click each of the background
objects that you want to appear.
4. Press Ctrl+C to copy these objects to the Clipboard.
5. Return to Normal View by clicking the Normal button at the bottom of
the screen.
6. Press Ctrl+V to paste the objects from the Clipboard.
7. Click the Design tab on the Ribbon and then click the Send to Back
button (in the Arrange group) if the background objects obscure other
slide objects or text.
Note that if you paste objects in this way, those objects are no longer tied to
the Slide Master. Thus, if you later change the objects on the Slide Master, the
change won’t be reflected on the slides with the pasted copies of the objects.

The PowerPoint Slide Masters include three placeholders for such information:
The Date area can be used to display a date and time.
The Number area can be used to display the slide number.
The Footer area can be used to display any text that you want to see on
each slide.
In addition, Handout and Notes Masters include a fourth placeholder, the
Header area, which provides an additional area for text that you want to see
on each page.
