Adding Header & Footer in Powerpoint 2010


Advertisements


PowerPoint offers the ability to add header and footers to the slides. While having footers in presentations is logical, header may not be quite evident at first. Typically, the slide title would be the header in the main slide, however when it comes to printing out handouts a separate header would be quite useful.

Here are the steps to add header and footer information to slides

Step 1 − In the Insert ribbon, click on the Header & Footer menu item.

Step 2 − The Header and Footer dialog has two tabs — the Slide tab and the Notes and Handouts tab.

Step 3 − You can add details to the slide footer from the Slide tab.
