Changing The Layout

Layout is initially a simple title and subtitle. If you want, you can change the layout of your slide.


5. Select the slide you want to change.


6. Click the Slide Layouts button and you will see the different predefined layouts that you can use.  Select the one you like. Automatically will change your selected slide.



Note: To make a good slide show, make sure your bullet points contain only small tidbits of text, not huge paragraphs. Remember that when you are giving a presentation, it is you, the speaker, who is the most important part, not the PowerPoint slide show. The slide show is nothing more than a visual aid.

To save, click the File > Save As. Type YourName-omelveny, find the Desktop and click on your folder tow times until it opens, then press Save.
