How to Insert a Custom Layout Every Time I Insert a New Slide in PowerPoint

Custom layouts are great to show the data and presentation content in different ways but keeping the presentation consistently at the same time. By default, every time you insert a new slide, the default Title plus Content slide is show in the presentation editor, however you may be interested to use a different custom layout or existing layout every time you insert a new slide in the PowerPoint presentation.

For example, you may be interested to insert the blank slide layout instead of the title+content layout because you don’t want to stay with the default placeholders for text.
