PowerPoint Basics 3 Microsoft PowerPoint Basics PowerPoint is an application that lets you create a slideshow-like presentation. A PowerPoint presentation consists of multiple slides, each containing text, images, diagrams, or sound. Using a projector hooked up to a computer, you can easily display a slide show to communicate information or enhance a lecture. The individual slides in a PowerPoint presentation have their look and feel based on the Master Slide, which is a sort of template for all slides in the presentation. You can use one of Microsoft’s design templates or you can create your own customized templates. PowerPoint Overview The PowerPoint application is composed of seven main parts, which are indicated by number in Figure 1 : 1. The Menu Bar is standard in most applications and contains submenus to all the different PowerPoint options and commands. 2. The Standard Tool Bar , just below the menu bar, contains icons and menus that act as shortcuts to PowerPoint options and commands. 3. Below the Tool Bar are several panes. On the left-hand side is the Outline Pane , which will show either a text-only outline view of your presentation or a miniature slide view. 4. Directly below the Outline Pane are the View buttons , which let you switch through different views of your PowerPoint presentation. 5. The Slide Pane is the main pane that shows the PowerPoint slide currently being worked on. 6. Directly below the Slide Pane is the Notes Pane , which is where you can type notes for your own use about the current slide. 7. On the far right-hand side is the Task Pane , which can contain any number of menus depending on your current task. 8. Below all of these panes is the Drawing Pane , which contains easily accessible tools for drawing and modifying images or auto shapes. Figure 1
