The MS Power Point presentations contains a number of ‘slides’ which are a very important feature of the program. They, in simple terms, are individual pages that contain a part of the overall presentation on a specific topic. These slides may consist of text, movies, graphics and other objects depending on their relevance, and they can be arranged freely on the slide. Using a template or slide master, Power point facilitates the use of a consistent style in a presentation. The presentation can be displayed live on a computer, printed, or navigated through at the command of the presenter. When the number of people attending the presentation is large, the computer display is often projected using a video projector. The types of movements that are included in the presentation are the transitions (movements between slides) that can be animated in anyway and custom animation (animating pictures to enter, exit or move).

The Power Point presentation does offer several advantages and facilities to its user for making an appealing presentation. Apart from these, it also has a feature wherein a password can be added to the presentation project to ensure that no one else can access or make any changes to the document. However, it must be noted that there is no safeguard facility by Microsoft to recover a password if it is lost or forgotten. So it is your responsibility to remember the password by storing it safely in a disc, a flash drive or a separate document such as MS Word or Notepad. Care must be taken to ensure that the location of the chosen password is accessible only by you.
