Using the Task Pane

If two or more panes are open at the same time, you can click the navigation buttons to move between them.

You can click a link to activate a feature, or you can select from available options.

To open a particular pane, click the Other Task Panes button (the down arrow button in the upper-right corner of the Task pane), and then click the pane you want to view.

The new pane's contents appear in the Task pane.

INTRODUCTION

The Task pane is a handy way to access common commands and controls. By default, the Task pane is displayed on the right side of the PowerPoint window. You can view several different panes within the Task pane area. For example, you can view slide layouts in the Slide Layout pane, or clip art in the Clip Art pane.


TIP

Clicking Home

Click the Home button at the top of the Task pane to return to the default Getting Started pane that appears whenever you open PowerPoint.

Depending on your screen resolution, you might not be able to see all the information in the Task pane. Click the scroll up or down arrows at the top or bottom of the pane to view more options inside the pane.


To close the pane, click the Close button.

PowerPoint closes the pane area. To display the Task pane again, select View, Task Pane.

The Task pane opens again, displaying the Getting Started pane.
