Views in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Your slides remain the same, yet the various views in PowerPoint make exploring those same slides a little different. This approach makes sense because viewing slides in Slide Show view gives an entirely different perspective than editing them in Normal view. Further, it's easier to reorder and work with multiple slides in Slide Sorter view -- and make changes to individual slides in Normal view. All put together, PowerPoint 2016 provides you with ten different views.
Outline Pane

The Outline view in PowerPoint 2016 essentially brings up the Outline pane on the left side of PowerPoint 2016 interface -- note that this now replaces the Slides Pane that shows up in Normal view. Also, any changes you want to make to your outline can be made through right-click options -- and we'll show you how you can do so.

Group Cards in Sway

Other than Text and Media Cards, Sway also provides a third category of Cards - these are Group Cards. Unlike Text and Media Cards, Group Cards are not just a mere Card category. Group Cards, in fact, are a set of Cards. Think of a pack of playing cards, and the many ways in which you can arrange them? In the same way, the content in Group Cards can be arranged in 5 ways at the time of writing this article.
Automatic Group Cards in Sway

The intent of Group Cards in Sway is to keep related content together visually. There are several types of Group Cards. The first of the Group Cards is called Automatic, and this Card can contain any Card types within the Text and Media categories. In other words, there are no restrictions when adding content to an Automatic Group Card.
Changing Between Group Card Types in Sway

Any content within Sway needs to be within one of the three Card categories: Text, Media and Group. As far as Group Card types are concerned, they are essentially a group of some combination that can include the Text and Media Card types. As long as you have the Card types and numbers that are a prerequisite for a particular Group Card type, you can change from one Group type to another.
