2.1. Start a New Presentation

Starting PowerPoint creates a new, blank presentation file. After PowerPoint startup, there are a few ways to create a new presentation, including making a blank presentation or using a template.

Templates in PowerPoint 2007 include both a design and suggested content for a particular purpose. Some templates install on the hard disk, but even more are offered online. Your system needs to have a live Internet connection to download online templates.
