Microsoft PowerPoint is one of the more intuitive and flexible Microsoft Office programs. But, before you create your first presentation, it’s a good idea to learn about the different elements of the PowerPoint window.

Each labeled item is described in full.
Located in the upper-right corner of your window, these buttons (in order) will minimize, maximize/restore and close your window.
The slide area is the actual “screen” on which your text and graphics will display.
This section is used to entering Speaker Notes for later printing.
In the Status Bar, you see a document page and word count, plus macro and editing indicators.
Located at the very top of your screen, the Title Bar displays the name of the program you are running and the name of the document you are working in.
