Ten PowerPoint Commandments
And the hapless Windows user said, “But who am I to make this
presentation? For I am not eloquent, but I am slow of speech and of tongue, and
my colors clasheth, and my charts runneth over.” And Microsoft answered,
“Fear not, for unto you this day is given a program, which shall be called
PowerPoint, and it shall make for you slides, which shall bring forth titles
and bullets and, yea, even diagrams.”
— Presentations 1:1
And so it came to pass that these ten PowerPoint commandments were
passed down from generation to generation. Obey these commandments
and it shall go well with you, with your computer, and yea even with your
projector.
I. Thou Shalt Frequently
Savest Thy Work
Every two or three minutes, press Ctrl+S. It takes
only a second to save your file, and you never
know when you’ll be the victim of a rotating power
outage (even if you don’t live in California).
II. Thou Shalt Storeth Each
Presentation in Its Proper Folder
Whenever you save a file, double-check the folder that you’re
saving it to. It’s all too easy to save a presentation in the wrong
folder and then spend hours searching for the file later. You’ll wind up
blaming the computer for losing your files.
