5 What is PowerPoint 2007? PowerPoint is part of the Microsoft Office 2007 suite. It is a presentation package which enables you to produce slides, incorporating bullet points, pictures, charts and even movie clips, quickly and easily. It can also produce audience handouts and notes to assist with your presentation. All of this gives a professional look to your presentation. Getting Started how to log on You can access PowerPoint 2007 from any of the computers in the library. You will need your username and password to log on to the network. To find your username your student ID card should be placed on the card reader at the Information Desk. Your password will be based on your date of birth and six randomly generated digits, but you can change this to something you ll be able to remember more easily. Exercise 1 1. Press Control, Alt and Delete simultaneously to log on. A Windows Dialogue Box will appear. 2. Enter your username in the first space (in lower case letters). 3. Press tab or click in the password box (left hand click). 4. Type in your password. 5. Press return. Top Tip See the Introduction to IT workbook for information on how to change your password. Exercise 2 Getting into PowerPoint Click on the Start button in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. 2. Move the arrow up to All Programs. 3. Next move across to Microsoft Office. 4. Finally move across to Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 and click. University of Bolton

6 The sequence to follow is demonstrated below. Find Microsoft Office Move across and click here then here Click here first The PowerPoint 2007 Screen Once PowerPoint 2007 loads, it looks like the picture below. Office Button Title Bar Click here to close The Ribbon Slides View Title Slide Notes Pane Status Bar Zoom Slider University of Bolton

7 Microsoft Office Button In the upper left corner of Microsoft Office 2007 applications Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and Outlook you will find the Office Button. It looks like this a round button with the Microsoft Office logo on it. The Office Button has replaced the File menu found in earlier versions of the Office suite but it retains much the same functionality. Let s take a look at what you can do when you click the Office Button. Clicking the button brings up a new window containing all the commands currently available to you. These include creating new documents, opening existing documents, saving documents, printing, options and a button to close the application. Office Button List of available commands Some commands offer a list of further options for you to choose from. Click here to set options that control how the application works for you Click here to exit the application (NOTE: This example is taken from Word 2007 but the same sets of commands are common across the MS Office 2007 suite of applications) University of Bolton

8 Quick Access Toolbar Directly to the right of the Office Button you will find the Quick Access Toolbar and as its name implies contains shortcuts to some frequently used functions. Quick Access Toolbar The default shortcuts include a save button and undo / redo commands. You can customise the Quick Access Toolbar by clicking the small arrow at end of the toolbar to include any other commands you may find useful. Click here to customise the Quick Access Toolbar. The items with a tick next to them are the ones currently displayed on the toolbar Top Tip You can also use the following keyboard shortcuts to perform the same basic commands found within the Office Button and on the Quick Access Toolbar: Save the current document Save As Open a saved document Print the current document Create a new document Undo Redo CTRL+S F12 CTRL+O CTRL+P CTRL+N CTRL+Z CTRL+Y University of Bolton

9 The Ribbon The Ribbon is a key part of the new user interface found in all Microsoft Office 2007 applications. The Ribbon has replaced the toolbars, menus and task panes that you were familiar with in previous versions of PowerPoint. It is a strip of buttons that run along the top all Microsoft Office applications and is designed to allow you direct access to all the commands the program has to offer. This means you no longer need to hunt through lots of menus to find the command you want! Let s take look at how the ribbon is organised: Tabs MS Office PowerPoint 2007 Help Task Groups The Ribbon is organised into a series of tabs that group together related commands into task groups. For example, the Home tab contains text formatting commands along with clipboard functions that let you copy and paste text and other objects within PowerPoint The Ribbon is a contextual menu. This means it will change its appearance to display all the commands that are relevant to the task you are currently performing. In the example below a table has been inserted into a PowerPoint slide. Notice how the Ribbon now displays all the commands that you would need to format a table. If you feel more comfortable using the more traditional dialogue boxes found in the previous versions of Microsoft Office you can still access them by clicking on the small arrow icon in the bottom right of most task groups. This opens up a more traditional style of dialogue box. For example, if you click the icon on the Font task group the Font dialogue box will open. University of Bolton

10 Clicking here reveals a more traditional style dialogue box Since not all commands are directly available on the Ribbon, these dialogue boxes remain a useful way to access more advanced commands. University of Bolton

11 How do I start a new presentation? PowerPoint automatically displays the Title Slide, as shown below. As this is the one we want to use, we can start creating our presentation straight away. Exercise 3 1. Click in the Title box then type in Professional Presentations. 2. Now click in the Subtitle box and type in A presentation about how to create a professional presentation using PowerPoint 2007 By (type in your name). Title box Subtitle box You have now created your first slide. It should look like the picture below. University of Bolton

12 How do I save my presentation? Now that you have started your presentation, it is time to save your work. Click on the Office Button, and then Save As. This will open up the Save As window as shown below. Save In box Exercise 4 File Name box 1. The Save In box will show My Documents which is your network drive. 2. Click in the box labelled File Name. PowerPoint automatically selects the title of your presentation as the file name. We want to save our presentation using another name so type in Presentation1. 3. Now click on. Top Tip Once you have saved your document and given it a name, all you need to do to save fresh changes is to click on in the Quick Access Toolbar. Save your work after finishing each slide or after making any significant changes. It s a good idea to save your work onto a hard storage medium such as floppy disk, CD or USB drive, as well as you network drive. University of Bolton

13 How do I change the text on a slide? Text is contained in Text Boxes. Click on the words Professional Presentation. You will see that the words are surrounded by a box with a dashed line style, as shown below. Text box highlighted by dashed line Exercise 5 1. Before you can change any text you have to select it, so click at the beginning of the word Professional. 2. Hold down the left mouse button and drag the mouse over to the end of the word Presentations. The text will appear against a pale blue background to show the text has been highlighted as demonstrated below. A mini toolbar will also appear at the end of the selected text giving quick access to text formatting commands. Mini Toolbar University of Bolton

14 Exercise 6 3. Move the mouse pointer over the Mini Toolbar. Initially the Mini Toolbar is semi transparent giving you a clear view of the text beneath. The Mini toolbar will also appear when you right-click on a portion of text. 4. For the words Professional Presentation change the Font style to Italic, and change the Size to 60. Click here to select font Click on the Italic button Mini Toolbar then click here to select font size PowerPoint automatically applies the changes you make to your text. Now that the font has changed you ll see that the title and sub title are now very close together so we want to move them apart. Exercise 7 1. Click off the words Professional Presentation (but still within the text box) 2. Put your mouse over the dashed line of the text box and the cursor will turn into a 4-way arrow. 3. Hold the left mouse button down and drag the mouse upwards, then let go. The text box will move along with the text inside it.

Secondly, Excel automatically generated a dummy set of data that is used to generate the chart preview you can see on the PowerPoint slide. In this exercise you will be working in the Excel worksheet to enter a new set of data for your chart. Exercise Change the data on your worksheet so it looks like the one shown below. 2. Resize the data range box to include the new data in column E Top Tip If you are unsure on how to edit the worksheet please see our Getting Started with Microsoft Excel 2007 workbook.
