In PowerPoint there are several ways to view your presentation.
To change views, click on the icon on the View Ribbon
Figure – Different Views in PowerPoint
You can also use the icons on the taskbar above the clock
|This is the view that you see when you first start PowerPoint and it has thumbnails on the left, the main slide in the middle and a notes area at the bottom.
|Here you get to see an outline of the slide structure in the left hand navigation pane, instead of the thumbnails.
|Slide Sorter View sets all the slides out on the screen so that you can see how they look as a whole and apply transition effects and design changes to the whole presentation at once.
|Here you can see just the speaker’s notes with a thumbnail of the slide they belong to.
|Reading View allows you to view the presentation as if it were being presented.
