Normal View in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Learn about the Normal view in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac.


Product/Version: Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

OS: Mac OS X

PowerPoint 2016 for Mac continues to providing several views that enable you to view and edit your slides. Unarguably, Normal view is the default and most often used view (see Figure 1 below). This view displays one slide at a time in the Slide Area, and is used mainly for editing and creating slides, and shows PowerPoint's typical tri-pane interface that includes the Slides Pane, the Slide Area, and the Notes Pane. If you cannot see the Slides Pane in Normal view, scroll down this page to read a tip that will help you restore that pane.

To navigate between the slides, you can use the Page Up and Page Down keys on your keyboard, arrow keys will also serve the same purpose. All these techniques are explained in further detail within our Slide Area tutorial.

If you are not in Normal view, you can easily get to this view by choosing the View tab on Ribbon, and clicking the Normal button (highlighted in blue within Figure 2).
