Quick PowerPoint Tips

Add transitions to your slides (no more than 3 is ideal).

Done well, transitions can add a little bit of movement and showmanship to your presentation. PowerPoint has several transitions built in for you to choose from.

To access them, select the "Transitions" tab from the top ribbon. From there, you can select a transition for it to preview on your screen. To customize it further, click "Effect Options" and play with the features to find something that suits your liking. To remove a transition, select "Transitions" and click "None."


Add animations to your slides (Dont over do this less is more).

Like transitions, animations can add movement, reveal information, and help you underscore the points you want to hit during your speech. To animate an element, follow these steps:

  1. Select the element you want animated by clicking on it.
  2. Choose "Animations" from the top ribbon.
  3. You'll have the option to choose from several effects displayed in the ribbon.
  4. Clicking on one will give you a preview.
  5. To customize the animation, select "Effect Options."
  6. To remove an animation, click "None" in the ribbon.

Some of the ways to customize animations include:

  • On Click
  • With Previous
  • After Previous
  • Duration
  • Delay

These describe how you want the effect to behave, so play around with them until you find an effect that suits your liking.

You'll also have the option to move animations around as you edit your slides with the "Reorder Animation" function in the top ribbon.

Save your presentation.(do this on a regular basis set up auto save to 7 mins)

Click "File" and "Save", making sure to specify which folder or destination you want your PowerPoint to be stored.

Run your presentation.(It's always good to do a trial run to ensure that your slides are set up properly)

To present your PowerPoint, go to the "Slide Show" tab and click "Play from Start". The slide will cover your whole screen, blocking out your desktop and PowerPoint software. This is so your audience (in this case, you for the trial run) is solely focused on the visual elements of your presentation.


Quick Word Tips

Create tables in Microsoft Word by typing a plus (+) to start the table and tab until you want the table cell or table to end. For example, in the example below we have three + symbols, each separated by a single tab. When you press Enter after the final plus, Word provides you with an empty table similar to the one below.

Close all open Microsoft Word and Excel files by holding down the Shift key and clicking "File" and then "Close All".
