Pin and Unpin Documents in Microsoft PowerPoint 2013

Edited by Colette Cole, Crystal, Eng

Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to pin and unpin documents in Microsoft PowerPoint 2013.


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 worked on. By default, it shows us the most recent items, however, we can also pin documents here as well. This way it's accessible and we don't need to fish through our folders.

    Click on the thumbtack icon. We can see "Our First Presentation" at the top, and there's a thumbtack icon beside it, which is a pin. In order to pin it, we just click on that icon.
