Task 4 How to Use PowerPoint's View Modes

You can display your slide presentation in different views within PowerPoint to help you work with the slides. You can use the view buttons to change your view quickly, or you can open the View menu and select a view. In this task, you learn about available view modes.

  1. Use the View Buttons

    To change your view, click the appropriate view button located in the bottom-left corner of the PowerPoint window. Use Normal view to work on your slides, use Slide Sorter view to arrange slides in a presentation, and use Slide Show view to run your slide show.



  2. Use the View Menu

    You can also switch views using the View menu. Simply click the View menu and make your selection from the options at the top of the menu.



  3. Switch to Normal View

    In Normal view, you see a single slide in the right pane, tabs in the left pane, and the slide notes in the bottom pane. In this view, you can work with the various slide elements (such as text boxes and graphics) and move them around the slide, or change the outline and add slide notes as needed. Normal view is the default view.



  4. Click the Outline Tab

    Click the Outline tab to view your slide presentation in outline format, which allows you to see the organization of your presentation's contents.



  5. Click the Slides Tab

    Click the Slides tab to view your slide presentation in thumbnail sizes, which allows you to see the slides in miniature.



  6. Close the Tabs Pane

    You can close the tabs pane on the left side of the screen to free up workspace onscreen. Click the pane's Close button to close the pane. To bring back the pane, click the Normal view button or choose View, Normal from the menu bar.
