Find a Presentation
Sometimes you want to open a presentation file but you forget what you named it or you forget
which folder contains it. Finding that file is very important because you need it not only to
design the presentation, but also to present the slide show. If it is not on the Recent Presentations
list in Backstage view and browsing for it is unsuccessful, you can use the PowerPoint search feature
to locate the file. You can also use the search feature on the Windows 8 Start screen to locate it.
