Microsoft PowerPoint is one of the most popular presentation programs supported by both Mac and PC platforms. Microsoft PowerPoint can be used to create interactive presentations for classroom, business, or personal use. To begin Microsoft PowerPoint, go to Macintosh HD > Applications > Microsoft Office 2008 > Microsoft PowerPoint (Figure 1). Select PowerPoint Presentation from the Project Gallery if a blank document does not open. Computers crash and documents are lost all the time, so it is best to save often. Before you begin to type, you should save your document. To do this, go to File > Save As. Microsoft PowerPoint will open a dialog box (Figure 2) where you can specify the new file’s name and location where you want it saved. Once you have specified a name and a place for your new file, press the Save button. By default, the format for PowerPoint 2008 is .pptx not .ppt like in previous versions. Note: If you want to save your document on a Mac and then open it on a PC you must specify a file extension (i.e. .ppt). Usually your computer will do this for you, but if it does not you must do this process while in Save As. Once you have titled your document, you can give it a file extension by clicking in the Format box. Click PowerPoint 97-2004 Presentation for the correct file extension and make sure Append File Extension is checked.
