How to Use These FREE Minimalistic PowerPoint Templates
1. Install the Fonts
Before opening your PowerPoint application, you need to make sure that all the fonts used in these templates are installed in your computer. Otherwise, your computer’s default fonts will automatically replace them.
To install the fonts, simply open up the downloaded Minimalistic PowerPoint Template folder. Double-click on the Font folder, Select all (Ctrl+A), right-click, and choose Install.
2. Import the Template to PowerPoint
Once the fonts are installed, simply double-click on the .potx file of the design you want to use in the PowerPoint template folder.
