Presentation Management 17: Collect Content

When you add clip media within the Clip Organizer, you need to select an existing Collection. There are some prerequisites though. You can only add your own media to the My Collections folder, or any Collection you create as sub-folders with the My Collections folder. A Collection is just like a folder in which you save files.Taking the folder analogy further, you can also create Collections within the My Collections folder. Later you can rename, move, and delete a Collection altogether.

Follow these steps to learn how to create and organize collections within the Clip Organizer in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows:

  1. Launch Microsoft Clip Organizer. By default the Collection List pane is opened within the Clip Organizer, as shown in Figure 1.
