Migrating to PowerPoint 2010 from PowerPoint 2003

If you’re upgrading from Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003 (or earlier) to Microsoft PowerPoint 2010, you’ll no doubt have questions at first. For example, you may wonder where certain buttons are in the new ribbon interface. To help you get used to PowerPoint 2010, we created a short guide that answers common customer questions about the transition. Click the link below, and the guide opens as a PDF file in Adobe Reader. You can then view the guide, print it out, or save it for later use.
