Change the Size of PowerPoint 2007 Slides - dummies

By Peter Weverka

PowerPoint presentations are designed to fill a computer monitor screen. If your PowerPoint slides aren’t doing that, you may have inherited an old PowerPoint presentation with slides that need resizing. In that case, follow these steps to choose a new size for the slides in your presentation:

1Click the Design tab.

You have to be in the Design mode to make changes to your slide sizes.

2Click the Page Setup button.

The Page Setup dialog box opens.

3Click the down-arrow on the Slides Sized For drop-down list and choose an On-Screen Show setting.

You can choose 4:3, 16:9, or 16:10. These settings determine the width-to-height ratio of slides when they are displayed at full-screen size during a presentation. The commands in the Page Setup dialog box apply to all the slides in a presentation.

4Click OK.

Most of the options on the Slides Sized For drop-down list pertain to printing slides on paper.
