Troubleshooting

Screen Resolution and Browsers

After saving a presentation as a Web page, you opened it up in a browser, but the graphics are almost illegible. And the organization chart has more squiggles than straight lines.

One of the two major drawbacks to running PowerPoint presentations from the Web is the poor graphics resolution. (The other is the download time.) There are two tricks. First, use the latest Web browser you can find—Internet Explorer 5, for example, renders PowerPoint slides better than IE 4. Second, save your presentation at a screen resolution that matches what you'll need. Because most advanced Office users nowadays run at 1,024×768 or higher resolution, it makes sense to run your presentation up to 1,024×768. To do so, when you save your presentation as a Web page, make sure you click the Publish button. On the Publish as Web Page dialog box, click the Web Options button. Then under the Pictures tab, set the Target Monitor Screen Size to 1,024×768.
