Curriculum For This Course Expand All Collapse All 104 Lectures 08:55:57 + – Getting Acquainted with PowerPoint 15 Lectures 33:30 The picture shown is the initial screen that is displayed when you create a new blank presentation in PowerPoint 2013. The view shown is called “Normal” view and is one of the many presentation views that are available in PowerPoint. It is the view in which you will perform most of your time constructing your presentation. A presentation is the default type of file in PowerPoint. Within the presentation file you create and modify individual slides. The slides within a presentation contain multiple text and graphic objects which create the contents displayed in the individual presentation slides. When you close a presentation, PowerPoint will prompt you to save unsaved changes in the presentation before closing. Learn this and more during this lecture. The PowerPoint Environment- 2013 Preview 03:48 A presentation is the default object in PowerPoint. Within the presentation you create and modify individual slides that will constitute the presentation. The slides within a presentation contain multiple text and graphic objects which create the contents displayed in the individual presentation slides. When you close a presentation, PowerPoint will prompt you to save unsaved changes in any open presentations that you were working on before closing. Learn this and more during this lecture. The PowerPoint Environment- 2010 04:22 The first thing that you should notice is that the PowerPoint screen consists of two windows: the application window, and the presentation window. A presentation is the default object in PowerPoint. The presentation window opens up inside the application window. The presentation window is where you create and modify the slides in your presentations. You may close the presentation window without closing the PowerPoint application. This allows you to open and close different presentations without having to restart the program. Learn this and more during this lecture. The PowerPoint Environment- 2007 04:22 The Title Bar is the bar that runs across the top of the application window. The name of the presentation that you are working on will be displayed in the center of this bar. At the right end of the Title Bar is a button group. There are five buttons in this group in PowerPoint 2013 and three in PowerPoint 2010 and 2007. They are, from left to right, “Microsoft PowerPoint Help,” “Ribbon Display Options,” “Minimize,” “Maximize/Restore Down,” and “Close.” In PowerPoint 2010 and 2007, only the last three buttons mentioned are displayed. Other than the “Microsoft PowerPoint Help” button, these buttons affect the display of the application window. Learn this and more during this lecture. The Title Bar Preview 02:01 The main tool available for you to use in PowerPoint is the Ribbon. This object allows you to perform all of the commands available in the program. The Ribbon is divided into tabs. Within these tabs are different groups of commands. The commands in each group can be accessed either through the use of buttons, boxes, or menus that are available within the group. Learn this and more during this lecture. The Ribbon Preview 02:12 Starting in PowerPoint 2010, the “File” tab within the Ribbon replaces the functionality of the older “Microsoft Office” button that appeared in PowerPoint 2007. You can click the “File” tab in the Ribbon to open a view of the presentation called the “Backstage View.” In this view, you can perform all of your file management. This includes performing functions such as saving your file, opening an existing file, or creating a new file. Learn this and more during this lecture. The “File” Tab and Backstage View- 2013:2010 01:15 The Microsoft Office button gives you access to your basic file management commands in PowerPoint 2007. For upgrading users, you will find that this button replaces the functionality previously found under the “File” command in the old Menu Bar. Learn this and more during this lecture. The Microsoft Office Button- 2007 Only 01:55 The Quick Access toolbar is located above the Ribbon, by default. It can be placed below the Ribbon if desired, by clicking the “Customize Quick Access Toolbar” button at the right end of the toolbar and then selecting the “Show Below the Ribbon” command. To reset its default location click, the same “Customize Quick Access Toolbar” button and then choose the “Show Above the Ribbon” command. Learn this and more during this lecture. The Quick Access Toolbar 03:01 Because of the increased use of tablets, PowerPoint 2013 has been redesigned with a new mode to allow for easier access to the buttons and other commands within the Ribbon and Quick Access toolbar. This mode is called touch mode. When you enter touch mode, the Ribbon and Quick Access toolbar are enlarged and extra space is added around the buttons and commands within the Ribbon and Quick Access toolbar so that you can more easily access them on your touch-based tablet. Learn this and more during this lecture. Touch Mode- 2013 01:21 Depending upon your magnification level, scroll bars can appear both vertically and horizontally along the right and bottom sides of your presentation slide. They have arrows at the each end that point in the direction in which they will scroll the slide when you click them. Learn this and more during this lecture. The Scroll Bars 01:03 When you are working on your presentation in PowerPoint, you will find that you are switching views of your presentation frequently. To change the view of your presentation, you can click the desired presentation view button in the lower right corner of the screen. Learn this and more during this lecture. The Presentation View Buttons 00:59 In the lower right corner of the application window, you can see the new Zoom slider that is available in PowerPoint. You can use this to change the magnification level of the slides in your presentation. This does not modify the presentation in any way, but rather changes your perception of how close or far away the slides in your presentation appear onscreen. Learn this and more during this lecture. The Zoom Slider 01:49 At the bottom of the application window is a long, thin, horizontal bar in which you find objects such as the “Zoom Slider” and the “Presentation Views.” The bar within which these tools appear is called the Status Bar. Here you can see various statuses monitored within PowerPoint, such as the magnification level and the current slide number and total count of slides. Learn this and more during this lecture. The Status Bar 01:08 Another feature in Microsoft PowerPoint is the Mini toolbar. When you select text within the presentation and hold your mouse pointer over it, you will see a small dimmed-out toolbar appear next to the selection. Learn this and more during this lecture. The Mini Toolbar 00:28 The changes to the visual interface that were implemented in PowerPoint 2007 have also affected the use of keyboard shortcuts within the application. While many things have changed, many other things have stayed the same to assist users in the migration to PowerPoint from versions prior to 2007. Learn this and more during this lecture. Keyboard Shortcuts 03:46 + – Creating Basic Presentations 15 Lectures 32:03 To open a presentation, you must first know where the presentation you want to open is located. When you initially open PowerPoint, you can see a listing of recently opened presentations shown in the panel at the left side of the startup screen, under the “Recent” section.

You can click into the placeholders shown in the title slide and type the text that you want to have appear as the title and subtitle of your presentation. When you want to add another slide to your presentation, you must then insert a new slide and also determine what placeholders will appear in the slide. Learn this and more during this lecture.

Using the “Save & Send” Features- 2010 Only 01:30 PowerPoint 2013:2007 save presentations using a file format that provides a smaller file size and better security than the format used in prior versions of PowerPoint. However, you should be aware of the file format if you will be sharing your presentation collaboratively with others who may need to use and edit the presentation with an older version of PowerPoint. Some features of PowerPoint 2013:2007 aren’t supported by older versions of PowerPoint. Also, if you save a PowerPoint 2013:2007 presentation using the new PowerPoint file format, it will not be able to be opened in previous versions of PowerPoint by default.
