  • Note: Your slides are saved as you create them, but it's always wise to save your presentation to the hard drive or to a disk as you go along.
  • To save your presentation:
    * Go to File/Save As and choose a place where you want to save your Powerpoint presentation (on a floppy disk? on the Hard Drive?)
    * To retrieve your presentation the next time you open Powerpoint, click on "Open an Existing Presentation" when the first box pops up (Remeber the dialog box with AutoContent Wizard, Template and Blank Presentation? "Open an Existing Presentation" is at the bottom of that box)
