Hello. I have one final, final question (for the time being). :-)

I use Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 and 2010 on my Windows 7 Professional 64-bit operating system. I am impressed with the things a user can do with this program.

From the program's GUI (Graphic User Interface), both Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 and 2010 'appear' intuitive to master or use with time and practice. However, like most Microsoft Office programs I have learned; I am sure there are 'MANY' hidden, unknown, or unfamiliar practical features that a user can yet learn from this program.


I was wondering if an EE expert can provide me some well written, detailed and documented online website link resource(s) hopefully with images and demonstrations along with the instructions about all the known features and functions for BOTH Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 and 2010? A free web source is recommended; but if you can recommend a paid online resource, I am receptive to that as well. I understand using common sense, any 'Microsoft' online web resource(s) is probably one of the 'best' online resources; however there may be very good third party web resource(s) online that 'could be' even better you recommend too.

Please provide your best possible well written, detailed and documented website link resource(s) hopefully with images and demonstrations along with the instructions; and/or your own detailed steps with suggestions, facts, hints, and tips.

Please reply.

Thank you!

http://office.microsoft.com probably has the most comprehensive instructions like you describe.

I did a PowerPoint 2007 training video for Total Training that might fit the bill for some of it. http://www.totaltraining.com

www.Lynda.com has some good training materials. I don't know how extensive their library is for 2010 and 2007, though.

@ Echo_S & nobus:

Hello. Nice to meet you, Echo_S! Nice to see you again, nobus! Thank you for your comments.

It is time to close this question/thread since ‘time is up’.

I am been provided two excellent comments.  I see one provides me comprehensive resources weblinks and the other with separate articles piecing ‘direct’ links to Microsoft and a few other weblinks. BOTH combined excellent due to the ‘variety’ of choices for my usage.  I see equal strength in both comments from different perspective angles. Therefore it terms of points I am going to give both comments from both experts 250 points each to be fair!

BUT… …like always… …I have to award that ONE “Accepted Solution”. So who?

Lynda.com provides a more detailed and technical features from an overview I have observed for PowerPoint  2007 and 2010. Yes, Lynda.com and even TotalTraining.com are very good paid, and as it is commonly known: ‘you get what you pay for’ (better quality and some limited personal attention). However, I understand that I have to say that this information either or both Lynda.com and/or TotalTraining.com *WILL BE, BY ME* resources at a LATER time as a follow-up for that ‘detailed and technical features’ I am missing from free general instruction. The templates weblinks for PowerPoint 2007 and 2010 are a ‘help’ (THANK YOU!); but not for instruction purposes. I see Microsoft and PCWorld.com, AddictiveTips.com, blogs, and much more provide me a 'good general understanding' of Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 and 2010. Therefore nobus will get the “Accepted Solution”. Echo_S will get the “Assisted Solution”. Like I already said, the points will be split evenly among the two comments posted for this question/thread – 250 points each. Why? Both combined give an expansive knowledge base for the PowerPoint user an all-encompassing knowledge and experience.

Again, thank you both for your comments with excellent answers and solutions!!!
