File Menu and Backstage View

How people use PowerPoint can certainly depend upon how intuitive and easy-to-discover the interface elements are. We will explore the existing features within the Backstage view which makes such features easy to access. You access Backstage view from the File tab, which is placed at the left extreme of the Ribbon.
Quick Access Toolbar

Soon after a power user installs a new application, he or she wants to customize their menus and toolbars so that their most often used features are accessible with fewer clicks - or even custom keyboard shortcuts. And even if you are not a power user, you should explore a very useful option that we explain in this tutorial - this will make your tasks easier, and quicker. While PowerPoint's recent versions on Windows have almost no menus and toolbars, they do have a single toolbar called the Quick Access Toolbar. Almost everyone who uses this toolbar just calls it the QAT, and that's the name we will use for the rest of this tutorial.
Ribbon and Tabs

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.

Backstage View - Info Pane

In PowerPoint 2013, all information that you need about your currently active presentation is available in a single easily accessible location. This location is the Info pane of Backstage View. Using the options available within this pane, you can access information about permissions set for the active presentation, prepare your content for sharing, and also possibly recover older versions of unsaved files. In addition, the Info pane also provides access to many more properties that we will discuss on this page.
