I need to change the resolution of my presentation in powerpoint from Office 2008 on my mac. I cannot figure out how. On a pc it is so easy but this is driving me crazy. I need to change it to match the resolution of my monitor.

hi telstar_,


Set resolution of slide show while creating it

    * Make a new slide show or open an existing one.
    * Now click on Slide Show on the menu.
    * In the slideshow menu, you will see Monitors which is the last item.
    * In this you get a option as Resolution.
    * You have option to set from 640 X 480 to 1024 X 768.
    * If you are going to show it on the same machine choose the last option which says, Use Current Resolution.

This is for a MAC, not a PC. My Powerpoint looks totally different on my Mac then on my PC, hence why I cannot find this myself.
