Learn how to search and browse content on the site.


Product/Version: PowerPoint Online
OS: Windows and Mac OS

Note: Microsoft is closing on December 15, 2017, and have asked users to remove or migrate their content from this site.

Once you visit in any browser, you will have to sign into to really achieve anything useful on this site. However, there's one important task that you can perform even without signing in -- and that is to search and browse existing content that other users have uploaded to this site. Note that while you need not be signed into to search and browse the content, signing in can still be useful if you want to comment or even download a file.

Let's now explore searching and browsing content:

  1. Open the site in any browser, as shown in Figure 1. Within the homepage, you'll find the Search box, highlighted in green within Figure 1.

  2. Type in your search keyword(s) -- for example, we searched using the term "PowerPoint". Then press the Enter key, or click the adjacent Magnifying Glass button.
  3. This brings up search results, as shown in Figure 2. You can see the number of results found (shown highlighted in red within Figure 2).

  4. Results are shown as a list from top to bottom. As of now, there are no buttons to move to the next page of results. To view any result, click on the large thumbnail to see the content.
Note: You can also filter results to show only files of a particular type, license, or language -- we explore this in our Filter Search Results in tutorial.
