When you launch PowerPoint 2016 for Mac, you are provided with an option to create a new blank presentation. Further, if you are already working on an open presentation, and want to create a new presentation at that point, you can do so using the New tab within the Backstage View.

- To access Backstage view click the File icon, as shown in Figure 1, below. The File icon (highlighted in blue) is placed at the left extreme of the Quick Access Toolbar.
