What if you are working on a presentation within PowerPoint, and want to create a new presentation, or even open another existing one? The answer is easy: you access the Home tab of Backstage view. When you bring up Backstage view, Home is the default tab.

Alternatively, you first click the File tab of the Ribbon.

This brings up the Home tab, which is the first tab within Backstage view in PowerPoint 2019 for Windows, as shown in Figure 1.
