This article is not about creating your own macros or scripts to automate PowerPoint. However, if you just want to run any macros or scripts that a friend or colleague shares, then you are on the right page. You can also get many scripts from our PowerPoint VBA Snippets page.

Follow these steps to get started:

  1. Make sure you have a script ready — you can download some scripts here.
  2. Open an existing presentation, or create a new one in PowerPoint. Then press Alt+F11 to access the Microsoft Visual Basic interface that you can see in Figure 1.

Remember, some scripts may do nothing at all unless you have something selected on the slide before you run them!

Tip from Steve Rindsberg: You can store many, many macros/scripts/routines in a single PowerPoint file and as long as you have it open along with any other files, you can access the macros as described.
