Microsoft PowerPoint lets you zoom in and out on a specific part of your PowerPoint slideshow. This can be helpful in editing as well as highlighting important objects or ideas during the presentation. This is how it works:
In PowerPoint, you can zoom in on the normal view or in the slideshow as needed. There are several ways to do this, depending on which view you are in.
The first method is to use the zoom bar at the bottom right of the window (which is not available in the slideshow view). , This method is convenient because the zoom bar can be accessed immediately. To use the zoom bar, click on the bar and drag it to the left or right to zoom in or out. You can also resize the slide to fit your current window by clicking the box to the right of the zoom bar.
Another method is to use the Zoom tool. Found on the "View" tab.
tab In the Zoom window, you can select a zoom percentage from the list of available options or enter an exact percentage in the Percent field. When you're done, click "OK" and your slide will zoom in on the selected amount.
These two methods are great for editing and need to look more closely. If you are holding a presentation and want to zoom in on a particular section for emphasis, you can do so.
Select the magnifier in Presentation view, and then click the part of the slide you want to be on. After zooming in, you can click and drag to move the slide. When you're done, click the magnifying glass again to zoom out.
One last tip: You can hold down both the normal view and the slideshow view Hold down the Ctrl key while holding the mouse wheel scroll to zoom in and out. This also works if you want to resize your thumbnails.
