How to Close PowerPoint Presentations- Instructions

How to Close PowerPoint Presentations: Overview

            This tutorial shows you how to close PowerPoint presentations. If you have multiple presentations open, you may want to close one of them. To close the current presentation when you have multiple presentations open, click the “x” in the upper-right corner of the application window. Clicking the “x” button is equivalent to executing the “Close” command.

            If you only have a single presentation open and you want to leave the PowerPoint application open, then click the “File” tab in the Ribbon. Then click the “Close” command at the left side of the Backstage View. Doing this then closes the file and leaves the program open. If you click the “x” in the upper-right corner of the application window with only one presentation open, you will close the presentation and also exit the application.
