1 PowerPoint 2010 Part 1 Documentation February 2012 PowerPoint includes all the features needed to produce professional-looking presentations. A PowerPoint presentation is made up of a series of slides, which contain the information you want to communicate with the audience. This information can include text, pictures, charts, video, sound, and more. Using Microsoft PowerPoint presentation software, you can add polish and pizzazz to professional speeches and pitches or just create a fun slideshow to share with family and friends. This class covers the basics of PowerPoint, including creating an onscreen slideshow featuring text and pictures, rearranging slides, and saving and printing. The added features of this multimedia application are introduced in PowerPoint Part 2. Starting PowerPoint in Windows XP 1. Click on the Start button in the task bar in the lower left corner of the Windows screen 2. Choose Programs 3. Click the Microsoft Office folder 4. Choose Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 Starting PowerPoint in Windows 7 1. Click on the Windows button in the task bar in the lower left corner of the Windows screen 2. Choose All Programs 3. Click the Microsoft Office folder 4. Choose Microsoft PowerPoint

2 Presentation Basics PowerPoint is a presentational tool, so there are some presentation basics to keep in mind when working with it. First, identify your audience. To how many people are you presenting? What is their age range? What role will the audience take listening, participating, taking notes? Does the audience care about the topic? Are the attendees on a tight schedule? Also consider the primary goal of the presentation. Afterwards, do you want the audience to feel good? Be more informed? Make a decision of some kind on an individual or group basis? Consider these factors when deciding what to include in the presentation and how to present it. The PowerPoint Screen Components of the PowerPoint Window The Ribbon Microsoft Office 2010 and 2007 make use of the Ribbon system. The Ribbon is the large graphic user interface (GUI) that appears at the top of the PowerPoint screen. The ribbon is divided into Tabs, Groups, and Commands. Tabs Commands Group Ribbon 2

3 Each tab opens with different groups of commands. Microsoft attempts to make the placement of the commands within both groups and tabs as intuitive as possible to make them easy to find. The PowerPoint 2010 Ribbon allows users to quickly access all of the program's features and commands with a minimal number of mouse clicks. The main tabs are in PowerPoint are File, Home, Insert, Design, Transitions, Animations, Slide Show, Review and View. To change to a different tab, click on its name. Ribbon Groups further organize tools and commands. For example, tools for changing font formats are arranged together in the Font group on the Home ribbon. Within each group are related command buttons. Click buttons to issue commands or open dialog boxes. Launcher (or Dialog Expander) buttons are displayed in the bottom right corner of some groups. Clicking the launcher button opens a series of options either in a Task Pane (such as the Clipboard) or a Dialog Box (such as the Font group). To see what a command does, hover the mouse pointer over the command. A textbox appears containing the command name, its keyboard shortcut, and its description. Opening a Clipboard Task Pane Click the Home tab to make it the active tab and then click the dialog expander arrow in the lower right corner of the Clipboard group; the Clipboard pane opens on the left. Click the X in the upper right corner of the pane to close it. Minimizing the Ribbon When the Ribbon is visible, it can be minimized so that only the tab names show by clicking the upward pointing Minimize Ribbon arrow in the upper right corner of the application (next to the question mark). Ribbon expanded Expanding the Ribbon Ribbon minimized If the ribbon is minimized, it can still be accessed by clicking on various tabs. NOTE: The keyboard shortcut Ctrl+F1 can be used to minimize or expand the ribbon. 3

4 File Tab The File tab has replaced the Office button that was in PowerPoint 2007 and the File menu in earlier versions of PowerPoint. Found in the upper left corner of the Word 2010 window, the orange File tab opens the PowerPoint Backstage view. Backstage View The main difference in Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 (vs. the 2007 version) is the introduction of the Backstage View, which includes: Saving, Opening and Closing a document Creating a new document Printing Changing PowerPoint options To close the Backstage view and return to the normal worksheet view, do one of the following: Click the File tab again Click any other tab Press the Escape key on the keyboard Quick Access Toolbar The Quick Access Toolbar is used to store shortcuts to frequently used command or features. By default, Save, Undo, and Redo are available. The toolbar can be customized to include additional commands. Shortcuts to PowerPoint commands that are not available on the ribbon can also be added to the Quick Access Toolbar. 4

5 Adding Commands to the Quick Access Toolbar Method 1: 1. On the ribbon, locate the command to be added to the Quick Access Toolbar 2. Right-click the command and choose Add to Quick Access Toolbar from the menu Method 2: 1. Click the Customize Quick Access Toolbar down arrow 2. Scroll down the list and select any commands you want to add (a checkmark means that the command will appear on the Quick Access toolbar) 3. If the command you want to add is not available, click More Commands 4. Navigate through the Excel Options dialog box to find the command 5. Click the Command and click the Add button to move it to the Customize Quick Access Toolbar box 6. When all commands have been added to the Customize Quick Access toolbar box, click OK Minimize, Maximize/Restore, Close Buttons The Restore Down button displays two overlapping windows. When clicked, the window reduces to the size it was prior to being maximized. The button now changes into a Maximize button. When the Maximize button is clicked, the window fills the screen. The Minimize button shrinks the window down to the task bar. Restore down Maximize The Close button closes the application. Minimize Close 5

6 The Status Bar The status bar at the bottom of the screen contains View icons and the Zoom Slider. Click the slider and drag it to the right to zoom in and to the left to zoom out, or click on the + to zoom in and the to zoom out. Slides PowerPoint opens with the first (and so far only) slide in the show. The default slide has two formatted placeholder textboxes ready for the title and subtitle. To enter text into one of the placeholders, click inside the box and type the text. The program automatically spaces and resizes the text to fit within the placeholder. Just like regular textboxes, placeholders can be resized or moved around within the slide. Placeholders on PowerPoint slides can contain many different items, including text, tables, charts, and clip art, depending on which layout is chosen. On the left of the screen is a thumbnail (miniature) version of the slide under the slide tab. As more slides are added, they are also displayed in this pane. This area is useful for navigating from slide to slide. The Outline tab provides an outline version of the slide show. 6

7 At the bottom of the screen is the Notes Pane. Notes can be added to each slide here that can be printed out and used as cue cards. These notes are for the presenter only; they do not appear on the screen during the PowerPoint slideshow. Add a New Slide There are several ways to add a new slide to a presentation. Option 1 - Go to the Home tab Slides group New Slide command Option 2 - Right-click on a slide thumbnail and choose New Slide from the shortcut menu that appears Option 3 - Click on the thumbnail the slide should follow and press Enter on the keyboard NOTE: With Options 2 and 3, the new slide is added with the same layout as the active slide used to create it. Choosing a New Slide Layout When adding a new slide using the Slides group on the Home tab, the layout can be chosen from the dropdown menu under the New Slide command. This menu contains several choices for the new slide, including text layouts, content layouts, and combinations of both. A blank slide layout can also be chosen and content (like textboxes and pictures) can be added later. To change the layout of an existing slide, click on the Layout command in the Slides group and choose a layout from the menu. 7

8 Click on the thumbnail image to choose the layout, which is immediately applied to the slide in the form of formatted placeholders. Inserting a Title 1. Click inside the Title placeholder 2. The insertion point appears 3. Type My First Slide in the Title Placeholder 8

14 The Reading View is new in PowerPoint In the reading view, the slide show fills the whole screen similar to slide show view, but the user is also able to see the title bar at the top of the screen and the status bar at the bottom of the screen. Reading view is useful to quickly navigate the slide show with easy access to the Windows task bar to switch to other available open programs or windows. Reading View The Slide Show View displays the presentation beginning at the current slide. This is the view seen when a talk is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation.
