PowerPoint Online may be only a web app that runs in your browser, but that hasn't stopped Microsoft from making it so full-featured that it includes almost all interface elements typically found in desktop programs, including a Status bar!

Mini Toolbar

Mini Toolbar in PowerPoint Online

Slide designers love to make quick edits to their slide objects! Impressive slides, though, are created painstakingly and take so much time. For example, you may have to play around with different fill options to make your slides look awesome, or even make umpteen changes to how your slide text appears. PowerPoint Online does provide extensive commands that allow edits; these command options are found within the Ribbon tabs. Yet, all these tasks involve moving your cursor to the Ribbon, located above the Slide Area and back continuously. While this movement may not result in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, it helps to know that PowerPoint Online also includes the Mini Toolbar, a floating toolbar that spawns right next to the cursor, and it is also available instantly with a right-click!


Editing View (Normal View)

Editing View is the most often used view other than PowerPoint Online’s default Reading view, which does not let you edit content. Within Editing View, PowerPoint displays one slide at a time in the Slide Area and shows PowerPoint's typical tri-pane interface that also includes the Slides Pane and the Notes Pane.
