Slide Master view is a feature in Microsoft PowerPoint that allows you to create and modify the master slide layout for your presentation. The master slide is a template for all the slides in your presentation, which controls the basic elements and design of your slides, such as font styles, colors, background images, logos, and footers.
By accessing the Slide Master view, you can modify the design of the master slide and apply those changes to all slides in your presentation. You can also create multiple master slides with different layouts, depending on your presentation needs.
In Slide Master view, you can add or remove placeholders for text, pictures, and other content, and adjust the positioning and formatting of these placeholders. You can also change the slide background, add or modify themes and styles, and apply global changes to fonts, colors, and other design elements.
To access the Slide Master view in PowerPoint, go to the View tab and click on the "Slide Master" option in the "Master Views" group. Once you are in the Slide Master view, you can edit the master slide layout and apply changes to all slides in your presentation.
