There are two types of tabs in the Media Browser in PowerPoint 2011 -- the first type comprises those tabs that show media content within some designated folders on your computer (such as the Photos, Audio, and Movies tabs). The other three tabs (Clip Art, Symbols, and Shapes) show media content that's part of the Microsoft Office collection -- in this tutorial we will explore the Clip Art tab, which provides the quick and easy way in which you can browse Office 2011's Clip Art collection. The other option to access the Clip Art is through the Clip Gallery, which we will cover in a subsequent tutorial.
The Clip Art tab of the Media Browser displays the Clip Art collection installed as part of Microsoft Office 2011, as shown in
