How to make powerpoint?

How you present the material in a speech can say as much to your audience about your expertise on a subject as the actual content of the speech itself. Microsoft PowerPoint is a powerful multimedia presentation tool capable of producing captivating and informative slideshow presentations. Microsoft PowerPoint is a program that is part of the Microsoft Office suite and has been emulated in open-source programs such as OpenOffice.

Open Microsoft PowerPoint. In Windows computers, PowerPoint can be accessed by clicking "Start," then "All Programs," then the "Microsoft Office" folder. Mac computers will install a link to PowerPoint on the taskbar. Click "Design" and choose one of the templates that open in the design tab. Additional designs can be downloaded from Click the area of the slide that says "Click to add title" and type your desired title. This slide is referred to as the title slide. Create a new slide by right-clicking on the title slide and choose the "New Slide" option. Windows users can use the keyboard shortcut by holding "Ctrl+M" with PowerPoint opened. Click the area of the slide that says "Click to Add Title" to add a title or "Click to Add Text" to add text to the slide. Type the information that you would like to display on your presentation in the text box. The text box gives you the option to add text, pictures and tables and even create graphs by clicking on one of the respective icons at the center of the text box. Click on a slide that you would like to add a special transition to and click the "Transitions" tab. Select a transition by clicking on it. Click on a text box that you would like to animate and click the "Animations" tab. Select an animation by clicking on it. Click "File" and "Save" to save the PowerPoint presentation. Open the saved presentation, pressing the "F5" button to open the presentation in full-screen mode.

When booting up I always get a box saying yahooMessenger.exe. app.error (0xc0150002) App.failed. I click the box off. I do not use messenger anyway but it is annoying.

Just a word of warning before you follow this walkthrough. Before you remove any programs from your computer its a good idea to make sure that any important data you may have on your computer is backed up.
If you don't use messenger you could remove it from your computer if there are no other users using the program on the computer.
The way to remove it is to go to add remove programs and select messenger from the list then uninstall the whole program.
I not sure which version of Windows you are using but the path to add remove programs is very much the same on all versions.

Click Start - type add remove programs in the search box at the bottom of the start menu - click add remove programs from the list that appears (should be at the top) - in the list of programs on your computer look for Yahoo Messenger and left click it once to highlight it - Your will now see uninstall at the top of the list - left click uninstall.

Yahoo Messenger will now be totally removed from your computer and you should not see the error message on your next start-up.
Hope this helps you out.
