In PowerPoint 2013, and in other Office 2013 programs you typically need to sign in to a Microsoft Account so that you can access settings, customizations, and even some files off the cloud. You typically do this by managing your Account, right inside PowerPoint or another Office 2013 program such as Word and Excel -- the Account Management window allows you to sign in to your Microsoft Account, and automatically connect to your OneDrive (previously known as SkyDrive) account. In this tutorial you'll learn how to access PowerPoint 2013's Account Management window, and explore the options provided:

  1. Choose the File menu to bring up the Backstage view, as shown in Figure 1. Now, select Account option (highlighted in blue within Figure 1).
