Adding a New Slide to a Presentation
To Save a Presentation
Organizing Files
and Folders
You should organize
and store i les in folders
so that you easily can
i nd the i les later. For
example, if you are taking
an introductory computer
class called CIS 101, a good
practice would be to save
all PowerPoint i les in a
PowerPoint folder in a CIS
101 folder. For a discussion
of folders and detailed
examples of creating
folders, refer to the Ofi ce
2010 and Windows 7
chapter at the beginning
of this topic.
You have performed many tasks while creating this slide and do not want to risk
losing work completed thus far. Accordingly, you should save the document.
The following steps assume you already have created folders for storing your i les,
for example, a CIS 101 folder (for your class) that contains a PowerPoint folder (for
your assignments). Thus, these steps save the document in the PowerPoint folder in the
CIS 101 folder on a USB l ash drive using the i le name, Saving Energy. For a detailed
example of the procedure summarized below, refer to the Ofi ce 2010 and Windows 7
chapter at the beginning of this topic.
1
With a USB l ash drive connected to one of the computer’s USB ports, click the Save button
on the Quick Access Toolbar to display the Save As dialog box.
2
Type Saving Energy in the File name text box to change the i le name. Do not
press the ENTER key after typing the i le name because you do not want to close the dialog
box at this time.
3
Navigate to the desired save location (in this case, the PowerPoint folder in the CIS 101
folder [or your class folder] on the USB l ash drive).
4
Click the Save button (Save As dialog box) to save the document in the selected folder on
the selected drive with the entered i le name.
Adding a New Slide to a Presentation
With the text for the title slide for the presentation created, the next step is to add the i rst text
slide immediately after the title slide. Usually, when you create a presentation, you add slides
with text, clip art, graphics, or charts. Some placeholders allow you to double-click the place-
holder and then access other objects, such as media clips, charts, diagrams, and organization
charts. You can change the layout for a slide at any time during the creation of a presentation.
To Add a New Text Slide with a Bulleted List
When you add a new slide, PowerPoint uses the Title and Content slide layout. This layout provides a title
placeholder and a content area for text, art, charts, and other graphics. A vertical scroll bar appears in the Slide pane
when you add the second slide so that you can move from slide to slide easily. A thumbnail of this slide also appears
in the Slides tab. The following steps add a new slide with the Title and Content slide layout.
