PowerPoint offers several views that you can use to work on different aspects of your presentation.
Having different views is important because certain views are better for performing certain tasks.
For example, arranging slides is easiest in Slide Sorter view.
You will usually work in Normal view, where you can create, position, and format objects on each
slide. In Outline view, you can enter presentation text in outline form and the text automatically
appears on the slide.
A Navigation
You can change views
using the command
buttons on the View
tab of the ribbon, or
using the command
buttons on the status
bar. These buttons
include Normal view (
Slide Sorter view
( ), Slide Show view
( ), and Reading
view ( ).
B Slides Thumbnail
The Slides Thumbnail
pane contains thumbnails
of each slide. The
thumbnails are numbered
by the order in which
they appear in the slide show. You
can click and drag the thumbnails
to change the order of slides and
you can delete slides from this
C Slide Pane
The Slide pane is the largest pane
in Normal view and shows a slide
and all its contents. Here you can
create and manipulate slide
objects such as graphics and
animations, and type text directly
on to the slide.
D Notes Pane
The Notes pane appears below the
Slide pane. You can enter speaker
notes associated with each
individual slide into this pane. You
can then refer to these notes while
presenting a slide show without
your audience seeing them.
