How to Change the Font on All Slides in a PowerPoint Presentation

When working in PowerPoint, you can change all fonts in your presentation at time. This saves you from the task of changing every slide.

A large part of putting together a slideshow in Microsoft PowerPoint is appearance. You spend a lot of time adjusting objects and shapes, choosing colors and styles, and adding transitions and animations. So if you decide to select a different font style for your presentation, it can be time-consuming to change every slide.

Luckily, there’s an easier way. You can change all fonts in a PowerPoint presentation in one fell swoop! The feature we’re about to explain is only available in the desktop version of PowerPoint on Windows and Mac.

Change a Slideshow Font Style on Windows

Open your slideshow in PowerPoint on Windows and head to the Home tab. On the far-right side of the ribbon, in the Editing section, click Replace. Choose Replace Fonts.

Home, Replace, Replace Fonts in PowerPoint

When the Replace Font box opens, select the font style you want to Replace in the top drop-down box. You’ll notice that only the fonts in your current slideshow display, making the process super easy.

If you prefer to change the font style on a single slide, here’s a refresher on how to do that in PowerPoint on both Windows and Mac.

Choose the slide and select the text. You can do this by dragging through the text, double-clicking for a word, or triple-clicking for all fonts in the box. Then go to the Home tab and pick a font from the drop-down box in the Font section of the ribbon.

On Windows, you can also select the font style from the floating toolbar that displays.
