Steps

  1. 1
    The first thing that we want to do is open the application.
    We'll see the landing page with a section on the left that shows us the most recent things that we've opened. We also have the option to open other Office presentations. On the right side of the screen, we can select a blank presentation, as well as see the different templates available.

    Type in the new text.
    We'll put "Colette's Company" for tutorial purposes. We can also add pictures and clipart. We can treat it the same way we would treat a blank presentation, however, this makes it easier because we only need to change the text.

    For example, this page shows us a chart and we can go in and change the information instead of putting a chart together piece by piece.

    We can also remove slides by right-clicking on the left-hand side and clicking on "Delete Slide".
    It will be removed from the presentation. Don't forget that this is a new document even though it's a template. None of the information put in the slides is going to stay in unless we save it.
