How to change the colour to show colour/grayscale in Microsoft PowerPoint 2013

Why change to view the presentation in grayscale? You might want to print the presentation and to print in colour is more expensive than printing to greyscale, so you need to see what the presentation looks like in grayscale before you print.

    How do you get a true gray scale? PowerPoint lines that are gray in the color view turn black when gray scale is selected, that is not a true gray scale.

    • Hi Stanley which version of PowerPoint are you using? In 2016 which is the latest you need to click on an object on a slide and then the greyscale option ribbon appears. Let me know what is happening for you and I will try and find a solution for you.
