How to use 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:

  • Go to
  • Click PowerPoint.
  • Create a new, blank presentation, start with a template, or open an existing file.

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:

  • On the File menu, select Rename.
  • Select Rename.
  • In the File Name field, enter the name you want for the presentation, and then click the location.


Note: To have subtitles always start up when a Slide Show presentation starts, from the ribbon you can navigate to Slide Show and Always Use Subtitles to turn this feature on for all presentations. (By default, it's off.) Then, in Slide Show and Presenter View, a live transcription of your words will appear on-screen.
