Printing for classes and presentations

    There are several ways to deliver a presentation, but one of the most common is by using a slideshow. These slides might help students think outside the box when they come up with inventive ways to show their points. The use of presenting aids enhances the quality of the presentation and helps students gain self-confidence.

    Presenting PowerPoint slides with a computer or digital projector is the most common method. So why would you print your slides when there are so many high-tech choices available?

    If your slides have a lot of information on them, then yes, you should distribute copies of your presentation. People will pay more attention to the ideas you wish to impart if they have a copy of your slides in front of them.

    The following are two creative uses for printed slides:

    1. Make a fail-safe, flawless backup. If your computer crashes, you’ll be glad you have a backup copy of your photos and documents in print form. Having printed copies on hand comes in handy if your laptop suddenly stops working.

    2. Make a batch of fast and dirty handouts. Aside from handouts, you may want to prepare additional supporting resources, such the ones included in the box. Printouts, on the other hand, are ideal for quickly providing an overview of your presentation to your superior.

    The Print option can be found by clicking the File menu and selecting Print.

    The printer you want to use must be selected in the Printer drop-down menu.

    1. To customise your settings, go to the drop-down menu and pick what you want:

    2. A drop-down menu allows you to choose whether to print all slides or just the current slide. Alternatively, type the slide numbers to be printed in the Slides box and separate them with a comma.

    3. To print only the slides, speaker notes, an outline, or handouts, select Print Layout.

    4. Color, grayscale, or pure black and white are all options when it comes to color.

    5. Before printing, you can make changes to the header and footer using the Edit Header & Footer option.

    6. Select the number of copies you wish to print from the Copies drop-down menu.

    7. Click on Print.

    How do you get a PowerPoint presentation to print properly?

    Press Ctrl+P in your presentation to save the file. The Print button is highlighted in PowerPoint’s Print menu. Using the default settings, hit Enter to print your presentation.

    To print out handouts follow the following steps.

    1. Open the File menu and select Print.

    2. Type in how many copies you want to print.

    3. If necessary, use the Printer drop-down list to select a different printer.

    4. To access the menu, select Full Page Slides from the drop-down list.

    5. Select a layout from the Handouts drop-down menu.

    6. Make any necessary changes to the print settings.

    7. The handouts can be printed by clicking Print. Printing your presentation or handouts this way will ensure that they have a lasting impression on your audience.
