What is a theme in Microsoft PowerPoint 2013

A theme is a palette of colours, fonts, and special effects (like shadows, reflections, 3-D effects, and more) that complement one another. You can see the Design Themes on the Design Ribbon

In the image above is a selection of Design Themes. Each Theme has a Master and a related set of slides. They have been created by skilled designers at Microsoft and the designer will have decided which layouts are included and how they should look.

Even the blank presentation has a Theme – it is the Office theme and can be reapplied to a presentation if you have gone and made too many changes and want to start again.
