Create a Widescreen Presentation in PowerPoint 2007

August 16th, 2009 No comments

Since widescreen displays are popping up everywhere, sometimes you may need to show a presentation in some widescreen monitors. Using widescreens for presentation display is a great way to use all the available pixels on these new screens around us. In PowerPoint 2007, setting up widescreen presentation is easier than ever, just follow these steps:

  1. Click “Design” Tab -> go to “Page Setup” group -> click “Page Setup” -> go to the pop-up “Page Setup” dialog.

    Page Setup
  2. Click the drop down list called “Slides Sized For” -> Pick one from the two new options for widescreen: “On-screen Show (16:9)” or “On-screen Show (16:10)“.

    Slide Size

[ Note: you should set up your slides to widescreen before you create contents. If you change from standard to widescreen after you have content on your slides, many objects like texts and images will be stretched wider and distort their appearance. ]
