Creating a blank presentation

PowerPoint offers three ways to create a presentation: Blank presentation, From Design Template, and From AutoContent Wizard.

The blank presentation option is one of the more commonly used methods. It offers several blank slides with layouts for text and graphics.

To create a blank presentation:
