Newer versions: PowerPoint 2007/2010
Archived older versions: PowerPoint: 97 through 2003
A presentation program lets you create slides to show pictures and data to a large group. PowerPoint does much more than just turn your outline into a set of bullet points. You can add video and animations, show charts a piece at a time, and keep the audience focused on the main points with attractive slides and bullet points.
PowerPoint 2007 and 2010 use a different style of interface than older versions of PowerPoint. They put controls for the most common actions on ribbon tabs instead of toolbars.
