PowerPoint 101
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on Google Plus Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost

 
This is the perfect class for anyone who knows nothing about PowerPoint, or has used PowerPoint for building real simple presentations, but needs to learn how to do more. We will take you from knowing nothing to building a full fledged presentation from scratch (without the wizards) in about an hour.

I agree with Jenny;please update to 2010  and email me, thanks


Reply from Richard Rost:

An update to PowerPoint 2013 is coming real soon. Oddly enough, I was reviewing my 2003 lessons the other day, and PP hasn't really changed that much. The old lessons are still pretty good.

If this is the same as the AutoContent Wizard then it was removed in 2007.

MS Article

You can use Templates instead.

PowerPoint 2007 2010 Comment from RICHARD A @ 8/2/2013
Is POWERPOINT 2013 going to be the same as  PP 2007 & 2010? Are the features similar or different? Are you going to offer the opportunity to UPGRADE  the PP 2010 to PP 2013?
When are you releasing it. I am already on the WAITING LIST expectant of PP 2010 I ordered. Am I going to see PP 2013 in lieu of PP 2010. Any clarifications?



Reply from Richard Rost:

I'm skipping over 2007 and 2010. The next PP lessons will be in 2013. If you've purchased my older 2003 lessons, you'll get a free upgrade. From what I can tell, the basic interface of PP is pretty much the same. The only upgrades have been minor.

PowerPoint 2007 2010 Comment from RICHARD AYAIM @ 7/31/2013
I really enjoyed this class. This is a real EYE OPENER. I like the dexterity which which you teach. You make these computer knowledge look very SIMPLE. In fact, I like the way you demistify these concepts.  Do you have POWERPOINT 2007 & 2010 ready?  i need them.


Reply from Richard Rost:

I'm skipping over 2007 and 2010. I'll be releasing a PP 2013 lesson very soon. Thank you for the compliments.

Hi Jenny,
There isn't a video out for PP2010 yet, they are available for Pre-order and it is on the list for the Production Schedule
http://599cd.com/blog/display-article.asp?ID=577
But there is no release date as of yet,

Depending on time they might even be the 2013 version just depends on how popular it is and how high it is on the list.

Hi, Do you have a more updated lesson on basic powerpoint. This one I am watching has the old interface. It's just a lot easier following if we have the same one. Thanks for your time! Jenny

Dear Richard Rost,

Thank you so much for the wonderful and easy-to-understand method you employ teaching your courses. I am really enjoying the courses I have recently purchased and once I grasp them, I will not hesitate to pursue more courses. All I can say for now is I wish I had known about your courses years before but it is never too late.

I'm sure you must get very tired of hearing how explicit and user friendly your tutorials are. Who could ask for more? Price, content, knowledge base, one fantastic package! Thanks again! You're the best!

Excellent tutorial! I'm now, again, one step smarter. 'Can't teach an old dog new tricks?
....599CD can! I (an old dog) am living proof!  Again, Thanks Mr. Rost.

Larry, this tutorial covers PowerPoint 2003. I'll be coming out with a 2007 version soon. Yes, the wizards are different.

I have 2007 Microsoft software and I can't find the wizard.  Is this irrelevant?

Bill, you can maximize the videos by checking the EXTERNAL button in my video player. That will run them in your full Windows Media Player program.

HI Richard

I've been checking out you learning tutorials for Access and Power Point.
I think you have a great touch for teaching software.
I just wanted to know if you are able to maximize the video screen to full screen with the paid training videos.
Thanks Bill

Kirk, I did not know this - and you're the first person in the five YEARS since that was recorded to say something! Can you give me a lesson number and time index so I can find it and possibly fix it?

Hey Richard, did you realize that you several times during the PowerPoint 101 you call it FrontPage 101.  I have to think about it because I have just taken the Frontpage Course.  It is good to know that you make mistakes too.  Ha! Ha!

Powerpoint 2007 is significantly different from Powerpoint XP (2002) which is what I use in my PP101 class. I am planning an updated PP2007 version which should be out by summer. Anyone who purchased (or will purchase) my current PP101 or PP102 courses after November 2007 will get a free upgrade.

Hi Richard:

Mary, in the DEMO version, you should only be able to view lessons 1, 2, and 9. However, YOU purchased this course way back in 2003. I'll email you your passwords. :)

Hi Rick - I was trying to watch the free demo in Powerpoint 101 but it's not letting me go on to the next lesson (Lesson 2). I though the demo was free. Do I need to order this course first?
