Delete a custom theme

When you customize and save a document theme so that you can apply it to other documents or presentations, the customized theme is saved in the Document Themes folder and is automatically added to the list of custom themes. When you delete the document theme from the Document Themes folder, it is automatically removed from the list of custom themes.

Which program are you using?

  2. Under Custom, right-click the theme that you want to delete, and then click Delete on the shortcut menu.

 Note   If you do not want the built-in themes to be displayed in the Theme gallery, you can move the theme files to another folder. We do not recommend that you delete the built-in themes, because the only way to get them back is to reinstall the 2007 Microsoft Office system.
