The five PowerPoint views

The view buttons in PowerPoint allow you to see your presentation using five views:

  • Normal view: This view, which is different in PowerPoint 2000, contains the Outline pane, Slide pane, and Notes pane. The Outline pane shows the text of your presentation for easy editing. The Slide pane shows text and graphics of the slide you're working on. The Notes pane displays a place where you can add notes. This view allows you to work on three parts of your presentation in one place.

  • Slide view: One side appears on the screen. This view is useful for editing slides.
