Have you ever wanted, to Switch between open Presentations in PowerPoint? Have you ever wanted to Cascade the open Presentations in order to see them all at once? Just read this post below, and you will find out how, along with other useful commands available.
We must first open our Presentations, then select the View tab, and then locate the area on the ribbon named Window as shown in the image below. In this area of the ribbon, we can do one of the following, which will be described below:
New Window: We can open a second window for our document, in order to work on it, in different places at the same time.
Arrange All: We can stack our open windows so we can see all of them at once.
Cascade: We can see all our open windows overlapped on the screen.
Move Split: We can move the splitters, which separate the different panes of the window.
Switch Windows: We can quickly switch to another open window.
In the image below, I have already opened a presentation named Autoexec 5th Presentation.pptx, and then I selected the command New Window as shown in the image below.
Straight away a new version of the same Presentation opens, which is named Autoexec 5th Presentation.pptx2 as we can see in the image below in order for us to work on different places at the same time.
In the image below, I have three open Presentations, and then I have selected the command Arrange All as shown in the image below.
Straight away, the three opened Presentations are stacked side by side in order for us to see them all as we can see below.
In the image below, I have three open Presentations, and then I have selected the command Cascade as shown in the image below.
Straight away, the three opened Presentations are overlapped on the screen in order for us to see them all as we can see below.
In order for us to move between the open Presentations, we just select the Switch Windows command as we can see below. The drop down menu appears with all our opened Presentations, where we just select to the one that we want to be activated. As shown below, the activated Presentation is the one with the tick mark at the left of the name of the Presentation.
