Keyboard Shortcuts for PowerPoint Views

Keyboard Shortcuts for PowerPoint Views

A reader asked if there were any shortcut keys in PowerPoint that could let her go from Normal view to Slide Sorter view? The answer is both no and yes, no because there's no real shortcut to do that and yes because there is such an easy workaround. What you need to do is quickly press the Alt + V keyboard shortcut to bring the View tab of the Ribbon in focus, and then press the D key immediately thereafter. So you would use the Alt + V > D sequence to get to Slide Sorter view. Fortunately, you can quickly access all PowerPoint views with similar keyboard sequences.

Sign In, Sign Out, and Switch Accounts in PowerPoint 2013 on Windows 7

Custom Backgrounds for Slide Master and Layouts in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Custom Backgrounds for Slide Master and Layouts in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Content and appearance are the two major components of presentation slides. Among them, the former is always more significant than the latter. But that does not mean you should neglect the latter. A simple looking presentation with a clean background is always a great idea since that doesn't overpower your message. Yet, there are plenty of opportunities to go beyond a plain background and use a less restrained background instead. Your choice for a slide background should complement the content of your presentation. For example, you'll want a flashier background for slides created for kindergarten students, or if you were creating a PowerPoint greeting card. On the other hand, you may want a washed out, faded, or even a subtle patterned picture for a typical business presentation.

Learn how to apply custom backgrounds to both the Slide Master and Slide Layouts in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac.

Don’t stop there though, and don’t decide that you have reached a conclusion with that predictable visual thought. In fact, there is not one but four ways to discover more original thoughts that go beyond clichés!

Learn about clichés in using common pictures, and how you can overcome them.
