Build the story, present with clarity and conviction, and move forward faster with Microsoft Powerpoint 2016
Give impact to your ideas
Use the laser pointer and pen tools to call attention to your point. Zoom into points you want to emphasize. And use the timer to stay focused, on time, and with your audience tuned in.
With Slide Navigator, you can quickly switch slides—in or out of sequence—from a visual grid viewable to you at a glance. Your audience sees only the slide you’ve selected.
Stay in control
With auto-extend, when you project your presentation to a second screen, your slides automatically appear on the correct screens. No fumbling with settings and equipment.
Design makes a difference

Make it special
To add special-effect visual impact to your story, insert and edit images and video. Plus, apply inventive transitions between slides and add pre-set animations and charts and graphics.
Add a designer’s touch. With built-in alignment guides, you can intuitively align shapes, text boxes, and videos on your slides.
