Getting Started with Microsoft PowerPoint:  Getting Started with Microsoft PowerPoint Typing Text:  Typing Text The first slide in PowerPoint is always your Title Slide The first box is for your title; the second box is for your name.

At the end of a point, press ENTER and then TAB to get to the next level of indent down. Opening the Application:  Opening the Application Option A Click on START Highlight Programs Slide your mouse to the right and highlight Microsoft Office Slide your mouse to the right again and click on Microsoft PowerPoint Option B Find the Microsoft PowerPoint icon on the desktop (that’s your basic computer screen, before you open anything) Click on it!

(1)You can type directly on the slide by clicking in the middle of the text boxes. (2)The narrow column to the left is your Slides Pane. It contains a thumbnail, or mini version of the slide you’re working on. Each slide you add will appear here, and you can use this area to rearrange your slides. (3) The area at the bottom is your notes pane. Type notes that you’ll use when presenting.
