PowerPoint 2003: Opening & Closing Files

PowerPoint 2003: Opening & Closing Files

In PowerPoint 2003, you can have several presentations open at one time. Each presentation is individually represented by a button on your Windows Task Bar at the bottom of your screen. Files can be opened either from the Open Dialog box or from the Most Recently Used File List.

From the Open Dialog Box, you can have access to all of the files currently saved on your computer. But, from the Most Recently Used File List, you only have access to up to nine of the most recent files you’ve worked with in Word (although, the default number for this option is four presentations).
