When you purchase a template online, it comes with a default color palette and in many cases includes a collection of colors in which you can choose and change the colors of your entire presentation in a couple of clicks.

To access the list of Theme colors select the view tab and Slide Master

Go to the color dropdown menu and you will display all the theme colors in your system.

But How to install the theme colors in Powerpoint and how to change after that? Go to the “Help File & Colors folder” included in our presentations and open the Color folder, copy one or all the files in XML Format (Color options). And paste in this folder location in your computer: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Document Themes\Theme Colors
