The PowerPoint window display varies depending on the view. A view is the mode in
which the presentation appears on the screen. PowerPoint has four main views: Normal,
Slide Sorter, Reading, and Slide Show. It also has another view, called Notes Page view,
used for entering information about a slide.
The default view is Normal view , which is composed of three working areas that
allow you to work on various aspects of a presentation simultaneously. The left side of the
screen has a Tabs pane that consists of a Slides tab and an Outline tab . These tabs alter-
nate between views of the presentation in a thumbnail, or miniature, view of the slides and
an outline of the slide text. You can type the text of the presentation on the Outline tab
and easily rearrange bulleted lists, paragraphs, and individual slides. As you type, you can
view this text in the Slide pane , which shows a large view of the current slide on the right
side of the window. You also can enter text, graphics, animations, and hyperlinks directly
in the Slide pane. The Notes pane at the bottom of the window is an area where you can
type notes and additional information. This text can consist of notes to yourself or remarks
to share with your audience. If you want to work with your notes in full page format, you
can display them in Notes Page view .
In Normal view, you can adjust the width of the Slide pane by dragging the
splitter bar and the height of the Notes pane by dragging the pane borders. After you
have created at least two slides, a scroll bar containing scroll arrows and scroll boxes
will appear on the right edge of the window.
