How to Change the color of bullet points in Google Slides?

Some people may want to change bullet point color in their Google Docs just to make their points stand out, especially from other bullet points in the document. You can use the same approach to changing Google Slides bullet points as well as their standard Docs. These instructions will help you better understand how to make bullet points change color in Google Slides and the rest of the Google Suite.

Creating a bullet list

The first step is showing how to create a bullet list. You can start in 2 ways: you can have text written already before bulleting, or you can start with the bullet point.

Creating a Bullet List
  1. If you are going to start with the bullet point, you will need to go into the “Format” menu, then select the “Bullets & numbering” option. Within that menu, you can choose between a “Numbered List” or a “Bulleted List.” Then you can select the bullet point that you want.

2. If you already have words written out, you can go through the same process as mentioned above; only you will need to highlight the area to which you want to add bullets.

3. You can follow these same steps if you want to add additional levels to your presentation.

How to customize your bullet points?

Now that you know how to add bullet points to your Google Slide or Google Doc, you can customize the bullets to achieve your desired look. You can choose from the different styles of bullets, or you can even select what color you want your bullets to be. If you wish to add the same color to the bullets or change colors for each bullet, you do follow similar steps.

Select what color you want your bullets to be
  1. Start by highlighting the line or lines to which you want to add color.
