Chapter 11. Creating a Presentation—From... > Understanding the PowerPoint Views

Understanding the PowerPoint Views

When you first start PowerPoint, the application automatically displays Normal view. Normal view includes a number of panes that enable you to work with different aspects of your presentation. PowerPoint includes three different views that you’ll use, depending on the tasks you’re trying to accomplish. The View controls, located in the bottom left side of the PowerPoint window (in the Outline And Slides pane) enable you to switch to these different views quickly. Table 11-1 introduces the different views you’ll use in PowerPoint and tells you a little bit about each one.
