PDF Print VersionShare this link

Microsoft PowerPoint is an electronic presentation program that helps people present a speech using a collection of slides. A PowerPoint presentation is a collection of slides that can be used to create oral presentations.

 

This is the standard first slide of a PowerPoint presentation.

 

 

Inserting a New Slide

Home << New Slide

 


Choose the Layout required, the layouts are pre-set but can be customised as needed

 

 

Selecting a Slide

To select a slide, click the slide in the slides panel (a thick borderline appears around the slide).

 

 

Views

There are four different views in Powerpoint:

• Normal
• Slide sorter
• Notes page
• Slide show

Each view is used for a different step in creating your Powerpoint presentation.

Normal View

View >> Normal

This view is used when creating and designing your slides.

NB: This view can also be altered using the icons at the bottom of the page on the task bar.

 


Slide Sorter View

This view is good to use when organising your slides. Use when you want to delete, copy, paste or move your slides.

Copying a Slide

Pasting a Slide

Moving a slide

After creating a Powerpoint presentation you may decide to change the order of your slides. Select the slide you wish to move (a border will appear around the selected slide), and drag the slide to where you want to reposition it and drop it into the position. The slide number sequence will automatically update.
