You know that Action Buttons are helpful because they at least look like buttons! But choices are limited to what PowerPoint provides – and let’s face it, choices for Action Buttons have remained unchanged since the last 20 years. What has changed in those 20 years? There was no Facebook, almost no social media, and the internet was in its infancy. Given this scenario, it is no surprise that the Action Buttons are limited to VCR style buttons – those were probably in vogue 20 years ago! Now times have changed, and fortunately you can tweak Action Buttons to create your own variants, as we will show you in this tutorial.

We have learned about gazillion ways to work with hyperlinks in PowerPoint 2013 – but why would anyone want to create a new email with a hyperlink in PowerPoint? First of all, it is quite acceptable that you do not wish to create an email via a hyperlink. However, you sure must be curious about why this feature exists? This works best in presentations that are sent to others via email, or via a download. Once the recipients view your slides, you might want some feedback from them. And that’s precisely why you can add an email hyperlink on your slides (typically your last slide) so that recipients of your presentation can click a link to open a new email!

For example, you can apply another Background Style so that all Slide Layouts and slides in your presentation use this changed slide background. In this tutorial, we will explore how you can choose from any of the 12 available Background Styles to apply to the Slide Master.
Evolution is an interesting concept because it's the change that's natural, logical, and involved. And although Themes (Office Themes) did not exist in their present form before Office 2007 for Windows, they did evolve from the humble PowerPoint template. And as you get deeper into how Themes work, you'll find that PowerPoint uses these Themes in amazing ways, and shares them with Word and Excel. That's the reason they are called Office Themes rather than PowerPoint Themes.

If you are intrigued by how something so strange can happen, read further.
Icons are the new "in" thing for visuals. In a world where you need to be neutral all the time, icons are a Godsend since they are neutral by nature. Another reason to use icons is because they look great in small sizes, and they also use fewer resources to display. The fact that they go well with contemporary flat and minimal design trends: that just gets you extra brownie points!
