Microsoft Office PowerPoint is a presentation program developed for the Microsoft Windows and Mac OS computer operating systems. Businesspeople, educators, and trainers use it often. It is a component of the Microsoft Office system.

Operation[change | edit source]

In PowerPoint, as in most other presentation software, text, graphics, movies, and other objects are positioned on individual pages or "slides". The "slide" analogy is a reference to the slide projector. Slides can be printed, or (more often) displayed on-screen and navigated through at the command of the presenter. Slides can also form the basis of webcasts.

Versions[change | edit source]

Versions for Microsoft Windows include:

  • 1993 PowerPoint 4.0 (Office 4.x)
  • 1995 PowerPoint 7 for Windows 95 (Office '95)
  • 1997 PowerPoint 97 (Office '97)
  • 1999 PowerPoint 2000 (Office 2000)
  • 2001 PowerPoint 2002 (Office XP)
  • 2003 PowerPoint 2003 (Office 2003)
  • 2006-2007 PowerPoint 2007 (Office 2007)
  • 2010 PowerPoint 2010 (Office 2010)

Note: There is no PowerPoint 5.0 or 6.0, because the Windows 95 version was launched with Word 7. All of the Office 95 products have OLE 2 - moving data between many programs - and PowerPoint 7 shows that it was as new as Word 7.
