Getting Started
with PowerPoint
Chapter
1
The first step of any journey through PowerPoint is to start up the
program and either create a new presentation or open an existing
presentation. Obviously, you can’t do anything in PowerPoint until you launch
the program.
In this chapter, we talk about some methods you can use to launch PowerPoint
and how you can immediately begin to create a new presentation. We also
show you how to save a presentation after you’ve created it and safely exit
the program.
Note that, at this point, we assume that you have installed either the entire
Microsoft Office 2007 suite or just Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007.
If you need to perform an installation, refer to the user documentation
accompanying your installer CD for installation instructions.
