Introducing Status Bar

The Status Bar is a thin strip located at the bottom of the PowerPoint interface as shown in Figure 1. This area provides information about the active slide and applied Theme -- and also provides View options.

If you have no presentation open in PowerPoint, the entire Status Bar area is grayed out.
