Using Themes allows you to quickly apply uniform formatting to an entire presentation. The nice thing about these themes is that they are predefined and Word, Excel and PowerPoint all use the same set of predefined themes and styles. In this way, you can create a unified look across all of your files, regardless of the program each file was created in.
