Create an Outline
Launch PowerPoint and create a new blank presentation.
By default, a blank presentation opens when you launch PowerPoint.
If you don’t have a new blank slide in view in the PowerPoint Slides
pane, click Microsoft Office menu, choose New, and double-click the
Blank Presentation icon.
Click the Outline tab to show the Outline pane (see
Figure 3-1). If the Outline tab is not visible, click the
Normal icon in the Ribbon.
Click to the right of the small slide icon, type the main
title in the title slide, and then do one of the following:
• Advance to the next slide: If you want just a title to
appear on the first slide, press Enter, and PowerPoint
creates a second slide.
• Add a subtitle: Press Ctrl+Enter, and you stay on the
same slide. Type a subtitle and then press Enter. Note
that if you want to add a second subtitle to the same
slide, just press Enter.

Type a slide title on slide 2 in the Outline tab and press
Ctrl+Enter to add a bullet point.
Press Enter to add additional bullet points.
After you press Ctrl+Enter to add your first bullet point, you press
the Enter key to add additional bullet points on the same slide.
When you’re ready to move to another slide, press Ctrl+Enter.
Press Ctrl+Enter to create a new slide and repeat Step 5
to continue adding slides (see Figure 3-2).
