Get started with PowerPoint for the web

With PowerPoint for the web you create presentations right in your browser. Create and save your presentations in your OneDrive, and edit and share them online. You don’t need any additional software and you don’t have to install anything.

Here’s how to get started:

  1. Go to Office.com.

  2. Click PowerPoint.

    The Office 365 home page with the PowerPoint app highlighted

  3. Create a new, blank presentation, start with a template, or open an existing file.

    The New Presentation section of the PowerPoint welcome screen.

When you start with a new, blank presentation, PowerPoint automatically saves it to OneDrive with a default name, such as Presentation 1. To rename your presentation, do the following:

  1. On the File menu, select Rename.

  2. Select Rename.

    Select Rename

  3. In the File Name field, enter the name you want for the presentation, and then click the location.

    Rename and save the presentation

You can do many things using PowerPoint for the web. See the following for more information about working with PowerPoint.
