Creating a Blank Presentation

Learn about the PowerPoint XP blank presentation option available to you when using this presentation software.


Once you choose a layout for your slides, you can begin adding text, graphics, and other items. You do this with placeholders—special places within a slide where you can add content.

To add text to a placeholder:

  • Click the placeholder.
  • Start typing.
