To view the presentation in Slide Show view:
1. With Slide 1 in the slide pane, click the Slide Show from current slide button . The
slide show begins by filling the entire viewing area of the screen with Slide 1 of Miriam’s
presentation. Watch as the slide title moves down the slide from the top and the Global
Humanitarian logo and motto gradually appear on the screen.
As you view this first slide, you can already see some of the types of elements that
PowerPoint allows you to place on a slide: text in different styles, sizes, and colors; graph-

list (with green textured bullets and white text, or solid cyan bullets with light yellow text),

graph of a villager using an open fire.

Slide 3, you again see the slide scroll down onto the screen from the top. Once the slide
appears on the screen, you see a chart slowly appear. PowerPoint supports features for
