One important aspect of a presentation is the footer, which is located at the bottom of each slide. The footer can contain important information such as the presentation title, date, and page number. In this article, we will discuss how to edit the footer in Google Slides.

To edit the footer in Google Slides, users can follow a few simple steps. First, they need to access the master slide, which is the slide that controls the overall layout and design of the presentation.

From there, they can edit the footer by adding or removing text, changing the font style and size, and adjusting the alignment. It is important to note that any changes made to the footer on the master slide will be applied to all slides in the presentation.
