If you’re an experienced Windows and PowerPoint user, starting new presentations and saving
fi les may be second nature to you. If so — great! You may not need this chapter. On the other
hand, if you aren’t entirely certain about some of the fi ner points, such as saving in different
formats or locations, stick around.
Even people who consider themselves “advanced” users may benefi t from this chapter because it
looks at some of the unique advanced saving features of Offi ce applications and explains how to
secure fi les with passwords.
Starting a New Presentation
You can start a blank presentation, or you can base the new presentation on a template or on
another presentation. Using a template or existing presentation can save you some time. However,
if you have a specifi c vision you’re going for, starting a presentation from scratch gives you a clean
canvas to work from.
Starting a Blank Presentation
When you open PowerPoint, a Start screen appears. From here you can click Blank Presentation, as
shown in Figure 2.1, or you can just press Esc at the Start screen to access a blank presentation.
