Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 Step by Step

Chapter 2: Create and manage presentations

Every time you open a presentation, a new instance of PowerPoint starts. If you have more than one presentation open, clicking the Close button at the right end of a presentation’s title bar closes that presentation and exits that instance of PowerPoint. If you have only one presentation open and you want to close the presentation but leave PowerPoint running, display the Backstage view and then click Close. To save a presentation 1. On the Quick Access Toolbar, click the Save button to display the Save As page of the Backstage view. 2. Select a storage location, and then in the right pane, click Browse to open the Save As dialog box. 3. Use standard Windows techniques to navigate to your file folder. 4. In the File name box, enter a name for your presentation, and then click Save to store the file in your file folder. Or 1. Press Ctrl+S to save an existing presentation without changing the file name or location. TIP  Programs that run on Windows use file name extensions to identify different types of files. For example, the extension .pptx identifies PowerPoint 2016, 2013, 2010, and 2007 presentations. Windows programs do not display these extensions by default, and you shouldn’t enter them in the File Name box. When you save a file, PowerPoint automatically adds whatever extension is associated with the type of file selected in the Save As Type box. TIP  The dialog box displays the contents of the folder in which you last saved or opened a file from within the program. If the Navigation pane and toolbar are not displayed, click Browse Folders in the lower-left corner of the dialog box.
