Print your slides

When you print your slides, PowerPoint Online turns your presentation into a PDF file. PDF preserves the layout and formatting of the slides. With most PDF readers, you'll get one slide per page with no headers or footers. However, if you use Adobe Reader, you’ll have more flexibility with printing.


  1. On the File tab, > Print, > Print to PDF.

  2. In the Print box, pick any other options you want and then click Print.

Tip:  The PDF file opens in a new browser window. You can close it when you are finished printing.
