2 Starting PowerPoint 1. Log into your PC. 2. Click on the Microsoft PowerPoint icon on your desktop or on the Quick Launch bar. 3. The Microsoft PowerPoint application will open in its own window. The Ribbon The Slide Layout Pane The Slide Area PowerPoint Window Properties The Microsoft PowerPoint window has many of the same attributes as other windows in the Microsoft Office Suite. The table below lists the different features and provides a brief description of each one. ATTRIBUTE The Ribbon The Slide Area The Slide Layout Pane DESCRIPTION A series of tabs that contain commands and icons organized into groups. The Ribbon has replaced the traditional menus and toolbars. The large area in the middle of the screen, where you create your presentation slides. The area on the left side of the screen that displays your slides in miniature. You can use the tabs above the first slide to switch between the Slides and Outline views. 2

3 The Ribbon The Ribbon is made up of a series of tabs that contain commands and icons that are organized into groups. It replaces the menu bars, toolbars, and some task panes that were found in previous versions of PowerPoint. Default Tabs There are nine default tabs on Ribbon. Each tab displays commands (icons) arranged in groups that are relevant to that particular module. For example, the Home tab provides access to PowerPoint s most basic commands, such as inserting a new slide, choosing a slide layout, and formatting text. Use the Insert tab to insert objects into your presentation, such as tables, pictures, shapes and music. Use the Design tab to customize your slides background, theme design or colors. Use the Transitions tab to apply, change, or remove transitions (how one slide flows into another). Use the Animations tab to animate text and objects on your slides. Use the Slide Show tab to start your slide show, customize the settings for your slide show, and hide individual slides. Use the Review tab for spell-checking, adding comments, or comparing one presentation to another. Use the View tab to access different PowerPoint views, open the slide master, and turn on or off the ruler and gridlines. The File tab is new to PowerPoint 2010, taking the place of the Office button. It provides access to the commands that allow you to do things to your presentation, such as saving, printing, and ing it. Your recent presentation list is also listed under the File tab. Contextual Tabs Some tabs are contextual, which means that they are only visible when you are working with particular objects. Contextual tabs only appear when the particular objects are active (you are working on them and they are selected) and are usually displayed on the right-hand side of the Ribbon. In the example below, an image has been added to a presentation. So, the Picture Tools Format tab, which is contextual, has appeared. It will disappear once the image is deselected or deleted. 3

4 Minimizing and Restoring the Ribbon If you want more space on the screen, you can minimize the Ribbon. To do so, double-click on any tab. Once you have minimized the ribbon, you will just see the tab names. To use the Ribbon while it is minimized, click on the tab you want to use. All of that tab s commands will appear. Select the command that you want to use. After selecting the command, the Ribbon will return to its minimized state. To restore the Ribbon to its full size, double-click on any tab. Double-clicking on tabs serves as a toggle for minimizing and maximizing the ribbon. Note: The File tab will always appear in an orange color, even though it is not selected. The Backstage View The Backstage View is new to Microsoft Office It replaces the Office Button in Office 2007 and the File menu in previous versions of PowerPoint. You access the Backstage View by clicking on the File tab. As mentioned on Page 2, the Backstage View provides access to the commands that allow you to do things to your presentation, such as saving, opening, closing, printing, and ing it. The Info Option The Info window, displayed below, displays your presentation s properties on the far right-hand side of the window. From this window you can also set permissions, delete metadata and view various versions of your presentation if you have enabled the AutoRecovery option. If the presentation that you are working on was created in a previous version of PowerPoint, the Info window will display a Convert icon, which you can use to convert the presentation to PowerPoint

5 The Recent Option The Recent window displays your recent presentations and your recent places. You can customize both menus by right-clicking the file or location you want to keep or remove. Select the option Pin to list to keep a presentation or location within the list; select the option Remove from List to remove a presentation or location from the list; and select the option Clear Unpinned Presentations (Places) to remove all unpinned presentations or locations from the list. The Print Option You preview and print your presentations through the Print window, displayed below. The Print window is divided into four sections. 1. On the right is the print preview pane. 2. The upper left section, entitled Print, lets you select the number of copies you want to print and includes the Print icon. 3. The Printer section, below the Print section, lets you select your printer. 4. The Settings section, below the Printer section, lets you determine the print job properties, such as what to print and color type. The Save & Send Option You can save or your presentation through the Save & Send window. Returning to your Presentation from the Backstage View To return to your presentation from the Backstage View, click the Home tab or press the ESC key on your keyboard. Quick Access to Backstage View Commands Please note that many of the commands found in the Backstage View can be attached to your Quick Access Toolbar for quicker access. 5
