Simplifying Tasks with Macros

If you find yourself repeating the same set of steps over and over or if you need to add new functionality to PowerPoint, you could create a macro. PowerPoint macros can run several tasks for you at the click of a button. You can easily create your own macros using PowerPoint's Macro Recorder, which records your actions, and then replays them. You can then add the macro to the PowerPoint toolbars or to the PowerPoint menus for easy access.

Record a Macro

Click the Tools menu, point to Macro, and then click Record New Macro.

Type a name for the macro.

If necessary, type the name of the presentation in which you want to place the macro.

If you want, add to the description of the macro in the Description box.

Click OK.

Perform the actions you intend to place in the macro. Any action you perform in PowerPoint is recorded in the macro.

Click the Stop Recording button on the Macro toolbar.
