How to Change Background Color in PowerPoint 2010

In PowerPoint presentations you can change background color. The best way to do this is to change the template background color in the master view. This will let you use the same background color among the whole presentation and also for the new slides that you will create.

In order to change the background color in Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 we need to go to View and Slide Master. Then, right click on the first slide and click Format Background.

This way, you can change the presentation background color to any desired color based on the standard palette of colors with basic colors or finding colors from the themes or advanced colors using the More Colors… option.
