How To Change Bullet Style And Color In Powerpoint

Customization is a powerful way to present your presentation in a unique fashion. Even something as simple as changing the style of bullets can have a subtle impact on your audience and will make the presentation more personal.

In this article, I will be showing you how to change the bullet style and color in PowerPoint.

Changing Bullets

Bullets are a way to both highlight and organize your content, so it’s important to make sure the style you use works well with your presentation.

1. Highlight the data you want to add/change bullets.

2. In home, click the dropdown button by the bullets section.

3. Select “Bullets and Numbering…”

4. From there, you may choose a variety of bullets. You may also want to use other symbols as bullets by using the “Customize…” feature.

5. Done!

Adding Custom Bullets

PowerPoint has a feature that lets you add your own bullets by using your own pictures. Here’s how:

1. Highlight the bullets you want to add/change

2. In home, click the dropdown button by the bullets section.

3. Select “Bullets and Numbering…”

4. Select “Picture…”

5. Choose which source you want your picture to come from. Either from your own documents or from the internet.

6. Insert the image

7. Done!

Changing Bullet Fonts and colors

Changing the font color of the letters, words, or sentence next to the bullet will automatically change the font color of the bullet.

The only time the bullet font will change is when it’s being used for numbering purposes.


Whether you’re looking to change the style of your bullets or add custom images and symbols, PowerPoint makes it easy to customize your presentation and make it stand out. With just a few simple clicks, you can easily modify the appearance of your bullets to create a unique look that resonates with your audience.
