Overview of How to Insert a New Slide in PowerPoint:

            This tutorial shows you how to insert a new slide in PowerPoint. When you create a new blank presentation in PowerPoint, one default slide that contains a “Title Slide” layout appears. You can click into the placeholders shown in the title slide and type the text you want to have appear as the title and subtitle of your presentation.

            To add another slide to your presentation, you must then insert a new slide and determine which placeholders appear in the slide. The slide layout you select for the inserted slide determines which placeholders appear within it. You can, however, also change the layout applied to a slide after you insert it to change its placeholders.

            To insert a new slide in PowerPoint with a “Title and Content” slide layout, click the “Home” tab in the Ribbon. Then click the “New Slide” button in the “Slides” button group. Alternatively, to insert a new slide with a different slide layout, click the “Home” tab in the Ribbon. Then click the drop-down part of the “New Slide” button in the “Slides” button group. The drop-down menu that then appears shows the other available slide layouts. Click the name of the desired slide layout in the drop-down menu to insert a new slide with the selected layout.
