Mark as Final in PowerPoint 2013

Mark as Final in PowerPoint 2013

Do you need to share your presentations with others? If yes, it's a good idea to make sure that your presentations are set to be read-only before you share them. What you need then is the Mark as Final option in PowerPoint 2013, which makes your file read-only. Note that this option is not as restrictive as password protecting a PowerPoint presentation. The Mark as Final option tries to prevent users from typing, editing commands, and proofing -- all editing options are disabled or turned off. However, do remember that Mark as Final is not a security feature, and it can be easily reversed by the recipient of your file.

Learn how to apply Mark as Final option to a presentation in PowerPoint 2013.

Ribbon and Tabs in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

The Ribbon is the long strip comprising tabs with buttons across the top of the main window within the PowerPoint interface. Since PowerPoint 2007, the Ribbon has replaced all the menus and toolbars that were found in PowerPoint 2003 and older versions. The Ribbon contains almost all the commands you need to work with your slides, and is designed in a way that helps you quickly find the commands that you need to complete a task. You no longer have to search commands endlessly through many menus and sub-menus.
