Have you ever needed to use more than one template in a PowerPoint at the same time? Well, PowerPoint 2016 allows you to do this. It is a good feature in the event you need to highlight or distinguish a particular slide or group of slides from others in a presentation. Here’s how this feature works.

1.) Open the PowerPoint presentation. I’m using a Mac computer but this feature works the same on a PC in PowerPoint 2016.

2.) Select the slide for which you’d like to change the theme. The slide will then be outlined in orange.

3.) To select a group of slides, hold down Command on a Mac or Control (CTRL) on a PC as you select the slides for which the theme will be changed.

That’s it! You’ve just learned how to use multiple themes inside of a PowerPoint presentation. If you need to use an additional theme in your presentation, just repeat these steps.
