The Developer tab of the Ribbon is chock-a-block of options that let you play with
programming, macros, and
ActiveX controls -- the last option allows you to Insert
a Flash movie in PowerPoint 2007. By default, the Developer tab is not visible (as shown in Figure 1
) -- and can be turned on (or off) by following the subsequent steps:
