Our 1 day Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 training course will get you and your staff up to speed quickly and ensure that their presentations look professional and engaging.

Computer Requirements for Microsoft Office 2013

Office 2013 runs on Windows 7 and Windows 8, it will run on desktop PC’s, notebooks, tablets and mobile phones, or on Windows Server 2008 R2 or later.  The Office 2013 family includes a large number of desktop applications as well as server products like Exchange and SharePoint.

Office 2013 will not run on Windows XP or Vista which means that many computers will need an upgrade before Office 2013 can be installed

What’s New in PowerPoint 2013?

Collaborating on Presentations

With Microsoft’s emphasis on improved collaboration, the new default setting means that presentations can be saved online to SkyDrive which allows the author to easily share their presentation with colleagues so that they can be working on the same presentation

Wide Screen Views

There is a new look with wide-screen themes which have been created to take advantage of the new wide screen monitors

Improved Visual Presentation Tools

Videos, pictures shapes and customised icons can be more easily created and added to enhance your presentation.

More Themes

Themes have been changed so that you can select a template and within that template select a variant.  If the inbuilt ones do not meet your requirements you can search online for a huge range of others from the Microsoft online facility at the touch of a button.

New Presentation Tools

When presenting, you can now direct your audience’s attention to your main point by zooming in or out of a diagram, chart or graphic with a couple of clicks.

Another useful feature is the ability to switch slides, regardless of whether they are in or out of sequence, with a grid that only you can see, so your audience can only see what you have selected.   Also when you project on to a second screen you won’t have to worry that your presentation appears on the correct screen
