To view the PowerPoint-compatible slides

  • When you click on the slide icon, you may be given the choice to Open the file or Save it.  Select Open and the slide should automatically appear/
    • The slide may be instead be saved to your computer and viewed later.
    • Many slides have multiple images or effects that appear one by one.  Click the left mouse button or use the right arrow key  ->   of the keyboard to progress through the slide until you get a black screen with a message that the slide is finished.
  • If the slide does not open
    • Depending on your browser, you may have to have a current version of Microsoft PowerPoint software on your computer.  You will need this if you want to save the slide and use it in another presentation.
    • If you don’t have PowerPoint, you can use the FREE PowerPoint Viewer (you cannot edit the slide with the viewer).
    • Open Office is a free suite of MS Office-compatible programs that includes the program IMPRESS, which is a PowerPoint-compatible presentation program.  However, IMPRESS does not have all the same bells and whistles of PowerPoint, so some slides may not play as originally intended.

To use a slide in your own presentation

  • Right-click the icon of the slide you wish to use.
  • Select “Save target as” and save the slide file to your hard drive, memory stick, or other storage device
  • In PowerPoint, open the file you saved
  • Copy the slide(s) you wish to use from my presentation
  • Open your presentation in PowerPoint
  • Paste my slide(s) into your presentation
  • Think about all the time you saved . . . then consider feeding the lions!

Notes: If you use an earlier version of PowerPoint than the slide was created in, or you use IMPRESS or some other presentation software, the slide may not behave as originally intended. If you import the slide into another presentation, the fonts will likely change to the default fonts of the presentation into which you import the slide.
