How To Change Your PowerPoint 2013 Office Theme

Are you tired of those orange strips of your PowerPoint 2013? Do you know that you can change the way your PowerPoint interface looks? Yes. PowerPoint allows you to change the Office Background and Theme to suit your liking. As a bonus, the change gets applied to all the other office applications to give a seamless look and feel. 

What you can change in the Office Theme:

PowerPoint allows you to change the Background (the small portion where you see some design) and the Theme (the portion around the slide and the color of the strip)
