Section 2: Getting Started and Working with the Home Ribbon

Let’s get this presentation started. Learn to navigate your way through:

  • The Ribbon which includes the basic tabs you will need to create an exceptional slideshow.
  • How PowerPoint will give you commands based on the context you are working on.
  • Find out about the backstage view, oops! the File tab.


Don’t overlook the little icons on the Quick Access Toolbar. Its commands will help you quickly print, save or undo any of your work. Don’t see a command you use often? No problem, learn how to customize this toolbar for all your quick access needs.


In this clip discover how to master the skills of cut, copy and paste. Learn what group these tools are located in and why it is important to select an item on the page.


Audience members won’t get seasick from bouncing headlines since PowerPoint always keeps the dimensions of its textboxes the same. Use the navigation pane to insert new slides in-between existing slides. Then pick from various pre-formatted slides that help add text, pictures, bullet points and more to your PowerPoint presentation.  


Viewers will learn how to duplicate a slide in this Clip Training video. This can help show audiences a step by step progression during a presentation.


Bold, Italic, Underline, Shadow, Strikethrough and Character spacing will help emphasize text and impact your audience. Noticing different words on a slide can help bring a point home. Be careful, too much font format might just pass up home and you’ll end up at the neighbor’s house.  


Not everything in Power Point has to be black and white. In this clip learn about tinkering with the font group. Have fun with theme fonts, font sizes, color and change case. Don’t like what you created? Learn about the Clear All Formatting button.

Don’t like the looks of the shapes that you added to your presentation? Don’t worry; in this clip you will learn how to format items from the Drawing Group with Quick Styles. Use the Live Preview button to help make changes easier to view.


Now you have customized your slide with shapes, lines, flow charts and more. Don’t like the placement of these once on the slide? Don’t hit the delete button. Watch this clip and learn how to arrange, rotate and add shape effects to the objects in the slide.


Lines aren’t just for underlining words in this clip. Learn how the line buttons can also double as connectors. Use curved lines, straight lines, lines with arrows and more to connect objects in a presentation. Make sure to pay close attention to how to use the connector buttons or your objects won’t stay linked.  


Stop searching for words you want to change. Watch with clip and learn how to Find and Replace words, Match Case, and Find Whole Words with the click of a button.


Selecting each object individually in a slide and moving them perfectly can be time consuming. This quick clip will show you how to grab and relocate as an entire group.  


Are the objects on your slide overlapping? Do the objects in the back need to move the front or the front objects to the back. Arrange objects to your liking by learning more about the drawing group.  


You don’t have to have a math degree to rotate the objects on a slide exactly 90 degrees. This clip will teach you three different ways to rotate objects whether it needs to be rotated precisely 90 degrees or only 13 degrees.


There are various options for resizing an object on a slide.

Learn how to:

  • Resize objects to exact size dimensions
  • Resize the length and/or width
  • Lock to Aspects Ratio
  • Best Scale for slide show

Section 3: Inserting Tables, Graphics, SmartArt and More

No need to use Excel to add a cell table to a PowerPoint presentation. Learn to insert a single cell table to a 10x8 cell table. Don’t like those dimensions? No worries, specify the number of columns needed or draw your own table to the exact size desired.


You’ll never realize how many options you have to tailor a table to a desirable style. Watch this clip and learn to play around with the contextual table tab to customize each table on a slide.


You audience will in no way get board after you watch this quick clip. Maintain their attention by inserting pictures from your files.


Have some fun with the pictures on your slides. With the Picture Tool Format Tab you can:

§  Frame Pictures

§  Add Artistic Effect, i.e. drawing, grain and weird colors

§  Change pictures from color to black and white and more


Is a picture too big for your slide? Or is there someone unlikeable in your picture? That’s easy, just crop them out. Be careful you don’t crop too much; the reset button doesn’t seem to discard the cropping changes.


Make sure you watch this clip if you plan on emailing your presentation. Compressing the pictures will help make emailing a breeze.  


Clip Art isn’t just about photographs any longer. Use this function to insert illustrations, videos, audio and animations to a slide. Encompass even more options when you connect to the internet.


Action buttons are fun. Add:

§  Graphics

§  Hyperlink to next slide or someplace else

§  Add sound

§  Add movie actions and much more


Wow! Did you know you can remove the background from a picture? PowerPoint 2010 lets you work with the entire picture or just parts of it to remove parts of the photo that you don’t want.


SmartArt really is smart. This clip will show you where you can find the graphic box that holds diagrams, organizational charts and much more to make presentations even more fun.


Exploring the SmartArt Contextual Tabs can help change the look and feel of your diagrams and charts. Learn about SmartArts design and format tabs. Don’t get too funky; remember the text still needs to be readable.  


Inserting informational charts to a presentation might seem intimidating. Not with PowerPoint. An Excel chart corresponds with the PowerPoint chart linking the two programs; making this task an easy way to enter information.


Work with the design, layout and format tabs to modify the charts in your presentation. Don’t worry; you won’t get puzzled as these tabs are just like the ones used when modifying pictures on a slide.

Get rid of boring text and add some WordArt. Enough said!


Opps! You already wrote the text in a slide, but now you want to be creative. No worries, watch this clip and learn how to customize WordArt or the text already have in a slide.


WordArt doesn’t always have to look the same. Use shape fills or fill in WordArt with all the color choices of the rainbow.

§  Shadow
