Presenter View in PowerPoint 2016

November 18, 2015

Presenter View in PowerPoint 2016

PowerPoint 2016's Presenter View is a purpose-built view that accompanies Slide Show view. This view is beneficial in an environment that has at least two displays such as a laptop and a projector. The projector then shows the actual slides – that is what we commonly call Slide Show view. However, you see the Presenter view on the laptop -- Figure 1 below shows you Presenter view. Notice that you get to see much more than just the slide -- rest assured that the audience viewing the projector output see only the slide!

Task Pane in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

November 17, 2015

Task Pane in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

The Task Pane is a docked area within the PowerPoint 2016 interface that provides more options than dialog boxes. Also unlike most dialog boxes which cover the Slide Area, you can view both the active slide(s) and the Task Pane at the same time -- thus the Task Pane provides a more streamlined experience. In fact, all the options within the Format dialog boxes from older versions of PowerPoint are now available within the new Format Task Panes in PowerPoint 2016.

Learn about how the Task Pane works in PowerPoint 2016, and how you can toggle its view.

Slide Area in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Many new changes have happened within PowerPoint 2016 and several other versions released in the past. However, one thing that has not changed in the last 20 years is PowerPoint's tri-paned interface! So why is the interface called tri-paned -- are there three distinct regions within the PowerPoint 2016 interface? Yes -- the Slide area is one of three principal regions in PowerPoint 2016 -- the other two are the Slides Pane and the Notes Pane.

Learn about the Slide Area in PowerPoint 2016.


Change Presentation Aspect Ratio from Standard to Widescreen in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows

November 13, 2015

Change Presentation Aspect Ratio from Standard to Widescreen in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows

In PowerPoint 2010, the default slide ratio is 4:3 (Standard). This can be a challenge, especially if you have been asked to create a presentation that has a 16:9 (Widescreen) ratio. Yes, you can easily change the ratio later but it is best to start creating the slide from the beginning in the slide aspect ratio that you need. Although PowerPoint 2010 lets you change the ratio later, the process is nowhere as intuitive as it is when you change the presentation aspect ratio from Widescreen to Standard in PowerPoint 2013. Still, let's see how PowerPoint 2010 fares.

Learn how to change a presentation’s aspect ratio from Standard to Widescreen in PowerPoint 2010.

Removing Customizations from PCB Files in PowerPoint 2007

PowerPoint add-ins help in adding new capabilities that can polish your presentation in many ways. But when the time comes to uninstall these add-ins for whatsoever reason, you might be surprised to find their menu customizations still exist! Click those menu extensions and nothing may happen -- but these menu options are still there! In another scenario, you may have customized your PowerPoint menus and toolbars to a large extent -- and may now want to restore everything to a pristine state -- almost like how the interface looked when you first installed PowerPoint.

The Sway interface essentially is tri-paned. The first of the three panes typically shows content based on what you have selected from the toolbar – so you see the All Cards pane if you have selected Cards in the toolbar. The second pane is the Storyline, which is the editing environment for your Sways. Finally, the third area is the Preview pane.

Video Cards in Sway

Video Cards in Sway

We've already explored quite a bit within our Microsoft Sway tutorials, but we will reiterate that you cannot just add any content to your Sways without first adding a Card that will hold that content. So these Cards are essentially containers for your content. To place your video content in Sway, you will first therefore need to insert a Video Card, and that’s precisely what we will learn within this tutorial.
