The PowerPoint Views

When putting a presentation together, it can be helpful to work with your presentation from different views. For example, if you want to edit the content of your slide, you would want to use the Normal view. You can access most of the available views from the View menu. The Outline and Slides panes, not available in the View menu, make up two additional significant view options.

View Icon Action
Normal Normal view Shows your slide as it will appear during the presentation. You are allowed to edit your slide from this view.
Outline tab (within the Outline and Slides pane)

Outilne tab

Shows you the text of your slides in a larger outline format than the Normal view. You can organize information using drag-and-drop within outline view.
Slides tab (within the Outline and Slides pane)

Slides tab

Similar to Slide Sorter view, where you can view all the slides in your presentation, rearrange and hide slides and view set transitions while you work on your presentation.
Slide Sorter Slide Sorter view Opens the Slide Sorter toolbar and presents miniatures of each slide, allowing you to reorder the slides and add builds within them and/or transitions between them.
Notes Page Notes Page view Illustrates what speaker notes and audience notes will look like.
Slide Show Slide Show view Shows the slides as if you were actually presenting. You are not able to edit slides in this view.
Excellence. Our Measure. Our Motto. Our Goal.
