Customizing the status bar
Although PowerPoint works great right out of the box, it can work even better for you with a
few tweaks. You can change program defaults and customize the Quick Access Toolbar and
Ribbon to make PowerPoint your own.
Setting Program Defaults
PowerPoint contains a large assortment of customizable program settings. Some make purely cos-
metic changes to the interface, whereas others enable or disable timesaving or safety features.
You can access most options by selecting File
Options and working in the PowerPoint Options
dialog box. Click a category in the PowerPoint Options dialog box along the left side, and then set
the options that you want. Table 22.1 lists all of the options, divided by category (or most of them,
anyway; depending on the language, you may have a few extra options or be missing a few).
