These five tips will not only save you time when creating and editing PowerPoint slides, but will also help your presentations to go more smoothly. You will learn the shortcuts to add a new slide (instead of a new PowerPoint presentation), and when giving a presentation – start a slide show, start slide show from this slide, make the screen go white, and make the screen go black.
