To start a new presentation:

  • Click File New (Ctrl+N).

Click file, choose New

  • In the New Presentation pane, under New choose Blank Presentation.

Choose Blank Presentation

  • Choose the design layout you want.

 Remember, if your task pane disappears from the right side of the screen, click View Task Pane.
