Two Miniature Views

The Slides/Outline pane is located on the left side of the PowerPoint 2010 screen.

  • The default setting is for Slides. This shows thumbnail views of the slides in your presentation.

  • Clicking on the Outline tab, will show a text outline of each slide in your presentation.

Note that each time you add a new slide, a miniature version of that slide appears in the the Slides/Outline Pane on the left side of the screen. Clicking on any of these thumbnails, places that slide on the screen in Normal View for further editing.
