Renaming a Master Template in PowerPoint 2007


So, this is not directly SharePoint related, however, I speak on SharePoint, presenting my slide decks using PowerPoint, store slides within a Slide Library in SharePoint, and this happened to be something I figured out while building a deck on SharePoint. So, in essence, this is SharePoint related!

So, I had an old template which I needed to change the Slide Master template name on, shown below. This is not quite apparent by bumbling around the various properties windows… but I did find a solution.

Go to View > Slide Master

Then click on the top-most slide in the template deck

And then click on Rename

Once you do so, you can now officially re-name the template name.
