choosing Add Slide
Slides From Outlines.
When you import a Word file in PowerPoint, the first slide in your
presentation assumes the Title layout followed by slides defined as
Title and Content. If you have a bulleted list and you want the first
slide to appear the same as the remaining slides, you need to
change the first slide master to a Title and Content slide.
Observe the first slide in your presentation. If you see

popup menu by moving the cursor over a slide thumbnail. Each slide
master has a specific name to identify the master. You find slide
masters for Section Header, Title Only, Two Content, Comparison,
Blank, Content With Caption, and Picture With Caption in addition
to the Title and Title and Content masters.
