Choose to View Thumbnails or Text

Note that each time you add a new slide, a miniature version of that slide appears in the the Outline / Slides Pane on the left side of the screen. You can switch between views by clicking on the desired tab at the top of the pane.

Clicking on any of these miniature slides, called thumbnails, places that slide on the screen in Normal View for further editing.
