How to Change the Design in Google Slides | Quick Tips & Tutorial for your presentations

The layout of a slide can be described as the set of elements that form up the appearance of the slide and thus determine its visual identity. These elements can be text boxes, placeholders, graphic resources, logos, colors, fonts, backgrounds, etc. In short, it's the design of the slides.

You can apply any layout already featured in any of the slides of your presentation. If you need to create new slides in your presentation, please refer to this tutorial How to Add, Duplicate, Move, Delete or Hide Slides in Google Slides.

To apply layouts to your slides, do any of the following:

  • Select the slide whose layout you want to change. Open the Layout drop-down menu and choose the one that suits your needs.
