> Getting Started
Click on the Powerpoint icon at the bottom of your screen or click on Start and go to Programs and then to PowerPoint.
A screen with 3 choices will appear: AutoContent Wizard, Template or Blank Presentation. AutoContent Wizard asks you some questions and then creates your slide presentation for you, usually with a very "canned" look. Template allows you to choose from a number of pre-designed templates so that you can focus on the content and animation and Blank Presentation gives you the option to design your own presentation from beginning to end. For the purposes of our workshop, we will use a template so that we can concentrate on some of the other features of Powerpoint.
