However, if you need to collaborate with others on the presentation, integrate with other Microsoft programs (like Microsoft Word), or if you need your presentation to be able to be viewable by anyone on the planet, you’ll want to purchase and use Microsoft Power Point.
If integration with other Microsoft programs isn't important, Google's G Suite has a presentation program that allows for excellent collaboration with others.
Power Point became a component of the Microsoft Office suite, first offered in 1989 for Macintosh which bundled several Microsoft apps.
Beginning with Power Point 4.0 (1994), Power Point was integrated into Microsoft Office development, and adopted shared common components and a converged user interface.
Microsoft Power Point is a slideshow presentation program that was first developed by Forethought, Inc. Microsoft purchased the software three months later and offered it to Windows users in 1990.
Since that time, Microsoft has released an abundance of updated versions, each offering more features and incorporating better technology than the one before it.
A Power Point presentation is a group of slides that you create either from scratch or a template that contain information you want to share.
Often, you show the presentation to others in an office setting, such as a sales meeting, but you can also create slide shows for weddings and birthdays.
The most current version of Microsoft Power Point is available in Office 365.
The most basic (and least expensive) Microsoft suites include Microsoft Power Point, as well as Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel.
