Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 Step by Step

Manage Office and app settings


Microsoft account options If you use Office 365, Skype, OneDrive, Xbox Live,, or a Windows Phone, you already have a Microsoft account. (Microsoft account credentials are also used by many non-Microsoft products and websites.) If you don’t already have a Microsoft account, you can register any existing account as a Microsoft account, sign up for a free or account and register that as a Microsoft account, or create an alias for an account and register the alias. TIP  Many apps and websites authenticate transactions by using Microsoft account credentials. For that reason, it’s a good idea to register a personal account that you control, rather than a business account that your employer controls, as your Microsoft account. That way, you won’t risk losing access if you leave the company. Two ways you can personalize the appearance of your PowerPoint app window are by choosing an Office background and an Office theme. (These are specific to Office and aren’t in any way associated with the Windows theme or desktop background.) The background is a subtle design that appears in the title bar of the app window. There are 14 backgrounds to choose from, or you can choose to not have a background.

Backgrounds depict a variety of subjects
