Author:

Product/Version: PowerPoint 2010 for Windows

OS: Windows XP and higher






PowerPoint 2010 continues the tradition of previous versions of the program by 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 / Outline pane, the Slide area, and the Notes pane. If you cannot see the Slides / Outline pane in Normal view, scroll down to read a tip that will help you restore that pane.

To navigate to the next slide you can use the vertical scrollbar on the Slide Area, or the Next and the Previous arrow buttons located at its bottom. You can also use the Page Up and Page Down keys to navigate between the slides.

If you are not in Normal view, you can easily get to this view by choosing the View tab on Ribbon, locate the Presentation Views group, and click the Normal button (highlighted in red in 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 in Figure 3) located towards the right side of the Status Bar.

Tip: Did you click the Close button located in the Slides / Outline pane, or just cannot see this pane itself in the Normal view? You can restore the Slides / Outline pane by choosing any of the above mentioned ways to access the Normal view.

Tip: Shortcut Keys

  • F6: Move clockwise among panes in Normal view
  • Shift + F6: Move counterclockwise among panes in Normal view
  • Ctrl + Shift + Tab: Switch between Slides and Outline tabs in the Slides pane in Normal view

Shortcut Manager allows you to create your own shortcut keys in PowerPoint - read the Indezine review of Shortcut Manager.
