Unlike in previous versions of PowerPoint on Mac such as PowerPoint 2011, the new PowerPoint 2016 on Mac has no option to enable the Developer tab on the Ribbon. So what about all the options within that tab? And why did Microsoft take it away? Let us learn more.

To find answers to these questions, let us first look at the options available within the Developer tab of the Ribbon in PowerPoint 2011, as shown in Figure 1, below.

A user asked Microsoft why the Developer tab was removed in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac, and their response was that this tab was removed because all options within this tab are already available elsewhere.

So where are these options now? Let us find them all, one at a time:

Editor: Choose the Tools | Macro | Visual Basic Editor option, that you can see in Figure 2, below.
