Creating a New Slide
Every slide is based on a slide layout. Normally a new presentation starts with a Title slide layout. This is used to introduce the presentation subject and speaker to the audience.
When inserting a new slide, you can choose to insert a new slide with the layout of the previously inserted slide, or you can select a different layout to use on insertion.
- Click the Home tab on the Ribbon and click the New Slide button in the Slides group
- The new slide is inserted after the slide displayed
If you click the top half of the button, PowerPoint will insert a new slide based on the layout of the previous slide you inserted.
If you click on the lower half of the button, a list of different slide layouts for you to choose from appears.
A new slide can also be insert by pressing Ctrl & M.
