Depending on the way you’re working in a file, you may find it more effective to work in a view other than the default, to change the magnification so that you can see more or less detail, or to view multiple parts of a file or multiple files at one time.
You switch among views of an Office file by using commands on the View menu or by clicking the buttons on the View toolbar in the lower-left corner of the window. Each program offers its own set of views that are appropriate to its content. For example, you can display a PowerPoint presentation in Normal view, Slide Sorter view, and Slide Show view. We discuss the views available in each program in Chapter 3.
