Microsoft PowerPoint is one of the most powerful and frequently used software in the business world. As with every tool, it is important to efficiently employ it and optimise the workflow, ultimately saving precious time and obtaining better results. PowerPoint developed immensely in the last years, streamlining the user experience and compatibility as well as introducing new functions and improving accessibility to those functions.
In this article, we will focus on essential PowerPoint shortcuts and functions that will dramatically decrease the slide deck creation time while also helping create beautiful, perfectly designed presentations. However, before we dwell on specific shortcuts, it is important to understand the way shortcuts work in PowerPoint. There are four main types of shortcut functions: direct shortcuts, the Menu Navigation function, the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) function, and Presenting Mode. We will discuss each function separately.
