Part 2. Creating Presentations > Assigning a Password to a Presentation

Assigning a Password to a Presentation

Open the Tools menu and click Options.

The Options dialog box opens. Click the Security tab, click inside the Password to Open box, and type a password.

Click OK.

The Confirm Password dialog box opens. Type the password again and click OK.

INTRODUCTION

PowerPoint 2003 includes a security feature that you can use to assign a password to your presentation file. This prevents other users from opening your presentation. Passwords can contain up to 15 characters, including any combination of letters, numbers, and special characters.


CAUTION

PowerPoint passwords are case sensitive, which means you must retype the password exactly as you entered it when you set up the password. Be sure to write down your password and keep it somewhere safe.


To test the password, save and close your presentation, and then open it again. The Password dialog box appears.

Type the password and click OK.

PowerPoint opens the presentation.
