When you create 4 to 5 slides, you can run this presentation as a slide show. Slide show means viewing the slides of presentation in succession.

Microsoft PowerPoint introduces with different views to help while creating a presentation. Slide sorter view and normal view are the two main views used in PowerPoint. You can click the buttons at the lower left of the PowerPoint window to easily switch between views.  


* Slide Sorter View

You can see all the slides in the presentation on screen at the same time in the slide sorter view, displayed in miniature. It makes easy to move, add and delete slides. You may also preview animations on multiple slides by selecting the slides you want to preview and then clicking Animation Preview on the Slide Show menu. You can also add special effects, such as animation and sound on title text, bulleted text, sub title text and picture. For example: Text moving from left to right and top to bottom with background sound is called animated slide. You can also add some special effect in your slide.
