Insert a New Slide in PowerPoint- Instructions

Insert a New Slide in PowerPoint: Overview

            In this tutorial, you will learn how to insert a new slide in PowerPoint. When you create a new presentation, PowerPoint gives you one default slide that contains a “Title Slide” layout. You can click into the placeholders shown in the title slide. Then type the text you want to appear as the title and subtitle of your presentation.

            To add another presentation slide, you must then insert a new slide and determine which placeholders appear in it. The slide layout you apply determines which placeholders appear within the new slide. However, you can also change the slide layout to change the placeholders after it is applied.

            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.

            To insert a new slide in PowerPoint with a different slide layout, click the drop-down part of this button. Doing this then shows a drop-down menu that displays the different slide layouts you can apply. You can click one of these slide layouts in the drop-down menu to create a new slide with that layout.
