Now that I have downloaded
some PowerPoint template backgrounds I like, how do I get them
to show up in my list of choices when I open PowerPoint?
Well, this answer really depends on where you have the original
templates file located on your computer and what version of
Microsoft PowerPoint you have on your system. For this
configuration: PowerPoint 2003 running on a Windows XP or 2000
Professional system - the path to add the downloads is:
C:\Documents and Settings\YOURNAMEHERE\Application
and usually, the YOURNAMEHERE field will be the first initial
and last name. So, for example, it will be jdoe for John Doe.
But remember, this will be different for the system you have
depending on versions of PowerPoint and your operating system.
