Microsoft PowerPoint in Windows 10 comes with a variety of different online templates and themes which can make your presentation look absolutely good and presentable to your audience. A PowerPoint Template or Theme consists of slides or a group of slides with unique layouts, fonts, colors, design, effects, background options, and so on. Choosing the right theme or template for your PowerPoint presentation, especially in case of business or work meetings, can send out a strong and persuasive message about the brand and brand values to the target audience.
