Google Slides presentations can often make good use of the various themes that are available by default. Simply applying one of these themes to your slideshow can instantly make it more visually appealing, which helps to engage your audience.
Occasionally, however, you may find yourself in a situation where you need to print your presentation. And while the background of your theme looks good on a computer screen, those solid-colored backgrounds can use a lot of ink. Fortunately Google Slides has a setting that allows you to print your presentation without that background color.
