Info-things on PowerPoint usage including tips, techniques and tutorials.
There are literally hundreds of PowerPoint add-ins out there, and they all plug into PowerPoint and ensure that you can do anything from inserting multiple pictures on your slide to sharing your slide content online. Others repurpose your slides so that your content can be reused in so many other ways. Of course, if I were to describe what PowerPoint add-ins can do, I would run out of pages to write and you would have no time to read the long post!
So, let’s look at add-ins that people tend to use every time they create slides. Yes, these are add-ins that you cannot live without and you cannot imagine using PowerPoint without them plugged in.
There are five add-ins that fit within this scope, and while one of them is free, one is freemium. The third one doesn’t cost much at all. The fourth is a little more expensive but it’s totally worth it. Finally, the last one is subscription-only. As you can see, not only have I found five of the best PowerPoint add-ins you can use every day, I also compiled this list in a way so that you will find at least one add-in that works for you. Of course, there’s no reason why you cannot use all five of them.
Did you receive a PowerPoint presentation, and now you have been asked to make edits to the PowerPoint slides within Google Slides? Why? It could be that you no longer have access to PowerPoint. It may also be that the program used to work with slides in your organization or educational institution is Google Slides, and you are expected to work within that program.
While PowerPoint is certainly the de facto standard for presentation slides, you may have umpteen reasons to work with Google Slides and also may need to open PowerPoint slides in Google’s presentation program to either view slides or to edit them. You may even have to save the slides in Google Slides’ native format and that’s something we will explore later on this page. Whatever your objective may be, you will first need to open your PowerPoint presentation in Google Slides as the first step.
The answer to that question is neither yes nor no. Answers may depend on your usage scenario, and beginner presentation users may find that Google Slides does have all the features they need. Also, while Google’s presentation program allows you to import PowerPoint presentations, it doesn’t support all features and effects of PowerPoint. In many ways, you will have to decide what works best for you.
Finally, it is true that Microsoft’s presentation program has many more features, and PowerPoint for the Web is something that’s more similar in breadth and features with Google Slides.
In this article, we will look at three ways to open a PowerPoint presentation in Google Slides. These are the three methods we will explore:
In the previous part of this Presentation Management series of posts, we explored how creating a story for a business presentation is different than constructing other stories. In this part, we look at how you can organize content to make your business story interesting.
In our previous post, we explored how we can add users for a Synology NAS device. In this post, we will take stock of how many users we have, add users, or remove them altogether. You may also want to edit permissions for existing users. In all cases, you’ll need to have admin access to your Synology DSM.

Here’s a question from a reader: I’m trying to replace the MS Mincho font used in my PowerPoint presentation with another font, but PowerPoint won’t allow me to do so. What are my options?
Although this seems like a simple question, there are many factors that could be at play here. Let’s explore them, one by one.
Although the question asked by the reader was about MS Mincho, you can use the guidelines and ideas shared in this post for any other font.
