PowerPoint Tips & Tricks

  • Save as .pdf
    When you save presentation as a PDF file it freezes the formatting and layout. Classmates and lecturers can view the slides even if they don’t have PowerPoint, but they can’t make changes to it. 
  • Design ideas
    PowerPoint Designer automatically generates design ideas for you to choose from. Take your presentation to the next level and add a professional touch using Microsoft's design ideas.
  • Presenter View
    PowerPoint Presenter view shows you the current slide, the next slide, and your speaker notes, to help you while presenting. Check out Microsoft's instructions on how to use Presenter View.
  • Annotate on Teams
    Learn about annotating a PowerPoint on Teams. When presenting a PowerPoint through Teams, annotation allows the presenter to:
    • use a virtual laser pointer and make ink annotations
    • better express or add content and engage more with their audience by drawing attention to certain sections within the PowerPoint presentation
