Creating a Presentation

When you first start PowerPoint, a blank presentation opens on your screen. Along the right side of the window you see the familiar task pane. You can use the task pane to start a presentation in any of the following ways:

  • Click Blank Presentation to open a new blank document on your screen. (There’s no need to choose this option right now, however, because you’ve already got a blank document displayed on the screen.)

  • Click From Design Template to display a collection of design templates in the task pane (as shown in Figure 11-3). These design templates are great—experiment with them to see whether one fits your vision for your presentation. The templates include background designs, color schemes, and text settings that work together to provide a pleasing, interesting look. In the task pane, scroll to the design you like and click it; PowerPoint then displays a new presentation based on the design template you’ve selected. Your next task is to add text and images to make it yours.

    Figure 11-3. When you choose From Design Template, a collection of templates appears in the task pane.

  • Click From AutoContent Wizard to start a wizard that helps you pull together the content for your presentation. The next section takes you through the process of using the AutoContent Wizard.
