Switch to Different Views in PowerPoint
- The views in PowerPoint that you can use to edit, print, and deliver your presentation are as follows:
- Normal view
- Slide Sorter view
- Notes Page view
- Slide Show view (which includes Presenter view)
- Master views: Slide, Handout, and Notes
- You can switch between PowerPoint views in two places:
Views for Delivering your Presentation
Slide Show View
Use Slide Show view to deliver your presentation to your audience. In this view, your slides occupy the full computer screen
Presenter View helps you manage your slides while you present, by tracking how much time has elapsed, showing which slide is next, and displaying notes that only you can see (while also allowing you to take meeting notes as you present)
Views for Preparing and Printing your Presentation
To help you save paper and ink, you'll want to prepare your print job before you print. PowerPoint provides views and settings to help you specify what you want to print (slides, handouts, or notes pages) and how you want those jobs to print (in color, grayscale, black and white, with frames, and more).
Slide Sorter view
Slide Sorter view gives you a view of your slides in thumbnail form. This view makes it easy for you to sort and organize the sequence of your slides as you prepare to print your slides.
Print Preview lets you specify settings for what you want to print — handouts, notes pages, and outline, or slides.
