Inspect a presentation

Inspect a presentation

Before you share a presentation, especially with people outside your organization, remove any personal and confidential information stored in the document or in the document properties.

Your browser does not support video. Install Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, or Internet Explorer 9.
  1. Open the presentation file that you want to inspect for hidden data and personal information.

    Tip: It’s a good idea to inspect a copy of your original document, because it’s not always possible to restore the data that the Document Inspector removes.

  2. Select File > Info.

  3. Select Check for Issues > Inspect Document.

  4. Select the types of content that you want to inspect, and then select Inspect.

  5. Review the results.

  6. For each type of content that you want to remove from the document, select Remove All.
