Closing and Reopening Presentations
Closing and Reopening Presentations
You can have several presentation fi les open at once and switch freely between them, but
this can bog down your computer’s performance somewhat. Unless you are doing some cut-
and-paste work, it’s best to have only one presentation fi le open — the one you are actively
working on. It’s easy to close and open presentations as needed.
Closing a Presentation
When you exit PowerPoint, the open presentation fi le automatically closes and you’re
prompted to save your changes if you have made any. If you want to close a presentation
fi le without exiting PowerPoint, follow these steps:
1. Choose File
Close.
If you have not made any changes to the presentation since the last time you
saved, you’re done. If you have made any changes to the presentation, you’re
prompted to save them.
2. If you don’t want to save your changes, click Don’t Save, and you’re done.
3. If you want to save your changes, click Save. If the presentation has already been
saved once, you’re done. If the presentation has not been saved before, the Save As
dialog box appears.
4. Type a name in the File Name text box and click Save.
Opening a Presentation
To open a recently used presentation, choose File
Open and click one of the presentations
on the Recent Presentations list on the right. Up to 25 can appear by default (see Figure 2.13).
To pin a certain i le to the File menu’s list so that it never scrolls off, click the pushpin icon to the right of the i le’s
name on the menu.
You can increase or decrease the number of recently used i les that appear on the Recent Presentations list. Choose
File
Options, click Advanced, and in the Display section, set the Show This Number of Recent Presentations box.
You can right-click an entry on the Recent Presentations list for additional options, such as Open a Copy, Copy Path
to Clipboard, and Remove from List.
