Starting a new presentation from the Start screen

PowerPoint 2013 gives you more choices for starting a new presentation than PowerPoint users have ever had before, and they all appear on the Start screen that displays when you first launch PowerPoint. You can choose from a sweeping array of templates to get a head-start on the type of presentation you want to create. Template categories include Business, Calendar, Charts and Diagrams, Education, Medical, Nature, and Photo Album.
