How to use PowerPoint Presentation

Slide2:

Step 1: Choose between a blank presentation and a template.  When you start a new PowerPoint file, you can either create a blank presentation or a template. Blank presentations allow you to apply your own style, but this can be a time-consuming process. Templates can give your presentation a uniform style, but they may not suit your exact needs.You can edit any aspect of a template, so feel free to choose one that mostly matches your vision and tweak it as you see fit .

Slide3:

Step 2: Create your title slide.  Your title is the first thing that your audience will see. It should be easy to read and give a basic overview about the topic of the presentation. Most presenters will include their or their group's name on the title as well.

Slide4:

Step 3: Add new slides for content.  Press Ctrl + M for a new slide. A blank slide will be added after the slide you are currently on. The slide will contain a title box and a text box. You can choose to use these or insert your own objects using the Insert tab .

Slide5:

Step 4: Navigate your presentation.  You can use the frame on the left side of the window to quickly scroll through your slides. Clicking any of them will open that slide so that you can edit it. You can click the Outline tab to see an outline tree of your presentation. Each slide will be labeled by the slide title.

Step 5: Preview your presentation.  You can get a basic feel for the flow of your presentation at this point by pressing F5 to start the slide show. Click the mouse to advance the slides. Use the preview slide show to get an idea of how long the presentation is and how well information flows from one slide to the next.

Select a slide and click the Transitions tab. You will see a list of the most common transitions. You can also click the arrow at the end of the list to open the full listing of available transitions .

Slide8:

Step 7: Add backgrounds.  Plain white is boring. If your presentation is standard text on a plain white background, half of your audience will be asleep before you reach the third slide. Use subtle backgrounds to add a little visual flair to your project .

Slide9:

Step 8: Add images.  Adding pictures, diagrams, and other visual aids can help the audience grasp the ideas of your presentation and drive your point home. Images break up the monotony of text and help keep the audience from tuning out .

Slide10:

Step 9: Add links.  You can add links to your slides that will allow you to quickly access websites or email addresses. This can be especially useful if you are distributing the presentation and want people to be able to easily view related webpages or send you an email .

Slide11:

Step 10: Embed video.  You can add video files to your slides. This can be useful for reports or any other video file that may relate to your presentation. The video file will play when the slide appears. Click the Video button in the Insert tab. you will be able to browse your computer for video files .

Slide12:

Step 11: Choose a good font size.  Presentations are designed to be read, otherwise it would just be a speech. Make sure that your audience will be able to easily read what you have written. A 10 point font may look okay when you're sitting at your computer, but when it's projected on the screen, people may be leaning forward in their seats straining to
