I was putting together a PowerPoint presentation for an internal training session here at eimagine, when I ran into this issue: I had a hyperlink that was hard to read because the link color blended in with the background color of my PowerPoint slides. So, I thought to myself…I know how to change a hyperlink color in Word…this shouldn’t be any different. I was wrong!
I tried everything from highlighting the link and clicking on the background color, the font color, and practically any other color pallet I could find and nothing…
After, wasting a ton of time trying to do what I thought should be a simple task, I asked Google and created the following tutorial in case you run into this issue too.
- Navigate to the Design tab.
- On the Variants panel, click on the bottom right down arrow to expand the Variant menu options.
- In the expanded Variants menu, hover over the Colors menu option.
- The Colors menu will expand, click on the Customize Colors… link.
- On the Create New Theme Colors dialog window, update the Hyperlink and Followed Hyperlink color pickers to the colors of your choice, and then click the Save button.
- You have now successfully changed the hyperlink color!
