Working with Backstage View
Because the Ribbon collapses, the exact steps for performing certain procedures depend on the active PowerPoint
window’s width. A small window may require an extra step of opening a button’s menu to select a command, for
example. For a large window, each command appears directly on the tab. This book assumes a PowerPoint app win-
dow size of 1024 x 768 pixels; if you run PowerPoint at a smaller resolution, you may occasionally have an extra step
to access a command.

appears. Many of the commands along the left side of the screen are categories that open
submenus when you click them. For example, in Figure 1.15, the Export command has been
selected, revealing additional choices.
