Create and Edit a Slideshow Presentation in Office on Microsoft Lumia 535

Edited by Thor, Gordon, Dougie

Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to create a slideshow presentation in Microsoft Office while using a Microsoft Lumia 535. The Office app will not be able to create a new presentation, only edit one. Therefore, to create a new presentation and edit it on a phone, a presentation will need to first be created on a computer and then uploaded it to the phone, or to the cloud, where the phone will be able to access it. As the functionality of the Office app is very limited, it will only be able to make minor edits to the file, such as edits to text or the order of the slides. Any major edits will need to be completed on a computer.
