This tutorial is part of an in-depth series where we focus on time-saving techniques. 


I'll briefly touch on setting up your PowerPoint workspace then move right into using your keyboard to quickly interact with that workspace, techniques that use the mouse and keyboard together and a few basic keyboard shortcuts. 

This tutorial lays the foundation for the following Shortcut Corner episodes and will set you up for success as we dive head first into more of my favorite tips and tricks for efficient use of PPT.

While there are a number of tips in this video it does just skim the surface on a wide array of PowerPoint functions. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out!

Steve Sheets, Technical Director

Steve is a designer with high expectations for a final product but he tends to obsess over process too. He likes to know the many ways to get things done, the advantages of each and their oh so scary pitfalls. Perhaps that's why he has a Mac and a PC?

"Workflows are one of the few times in life where the best way tends to be the easy way, the trick is figuring out what's 'easy' for your specific situation."
