Product/Version: PowerPoint 365 for Mac

PowerPoint 365 for Mac provides several views that enable you to view and edit your slides. Unarguably, Normal view is the default and most often used view, as can be seen in 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. And if you cannot see the Notes Pane, all you need to do is to click the small Notes button on the Status Bar.

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 red within Figure 2).

Other than the View tab of the Ribbon, you can also access the Normal view by clicking the Normal button (highlighted in red within Figure 3) located towards the right side of the Status Bar.

Lost the Slides Pane?

Did you drag the Slides Pane so that you can no longer see any slides within the pane, as shown in Figure 4, below?

You can restore the Slides Pane by dragging the pane rightwards. Can't see where to drag? Just go to the extreme edge of the PowerPoint interface until your cursor changes to the Resize icon and then drag rightwards.

You can also access the View tab of the Ribbon and click the Normal button (highlighted in red within Figure 2, shown earlier on this page).

You can restore the Slides Pane by choosing any of the above-mentioned ways to access the Normal view, this will restore the Slides Pane.

Here are some keyboard shortcuts that will help you navigate Normal view:

  • F6: Move clockwise among panes in Normal view
  • If you are using a laptop such as a MacBook Pro, MacBook, or MacBook Air, use (Fn) + F6 instead.
  • Shift + F6: Move counterclockwise among panes in Normal view
  • If you are using a laptop such as a MacBook Pro, MacBook, or MacBook Air, use Shift + (Fn) + F6 instead.
  • Ctrl + Shift + Tab: Switch between Normal and Outline views

Repeat clicking the Normal button (highlighted in red within Figure 3, earlier on this page) on the Status Bar also switches between Normal and Outline views.
