What's Your Question?
How to Install PowerPoint
Microsoft’s PowerPoint software is an industry-leading presentation software that is excellent for talks and presentations where slides of text and graphics need to appear on a screen. Installing PowerPoint on your computer after purchasing it is easy to do.
Launch the Setup Program
Microsoft’s professional Powerpoint software is often bundled into the paid Microsoft Office suite of software. Microsoft doesn’t offer free installation of Powerpoint.
For the purpose of this tutorial, we’ll outline the basic steps of installing Microsoft Office 2010 — and as an extension Powerpoint — onto your computer from a DVD.
- First, put your Microsoft Office 2010 DVD into your computer’s optical disc drive and close the door.
- The installation program may begin running on its own when you do this, or you may have to manually locate and run “SETUP.EXE.”
- Sometimes, Windows requests the user to give permission to launch the installer. If this happens, grant permission and continue.
Understand Your Product Key
The Microsoft Office installation program will ask for a 25-character “product key.” This is a long string of numbers and letters — rather like a serial number — that Microsoft employs as a copy protection device. It’s designed to prevent the user — or more than one user — from using PowerPoint (and the whole Microsoft Office suite) on more computers than the license agreement allows.
A product key is arranged like this, with the 25-characters broken up into five groups of five:
If a product key becomes damaged, Microsoft can help users obtain a replacement.
The product key will probably be included somewhere within the packaging (perhaps in the DVD case) of your Microsoft Office software.
Enter Your Product Key
When entering the product key, Windows will supply the dashes automatically. You won’t have to add them in yourself. Take care to type in the product key precisely as it appears on your sticker. When complete, the installer will check the product key’s authenticity. PowerPoint will need to be activated the first time you use it. If you want PowerPoint to attempt this automatically, check the “Attempt to automatically activate my product online” button and click “continue” to proceed.
Agree to the License Terms
Next, be sure to read the complete Microsoft software license terms. Agreeing to the terms is the only way to use PowerPoint. If you opt out by closing the installer at this point, you won’t be able to use your new software. Once you’ve read the terms and agree, check the “I accept the terms of this agreement” box and choose “continue.”
Install and Finish
The installer will ask you to choose a type of installation. “Install now” uses the default settings, while “customize” can be used by advanced users to tweak the Office installation just the way they want it. In this tutorial, we’ll assume you chose “install now,” which will install PowerPoint along with the rest of the Office package.
Click “install now.” The Office setup program gets to work copying the required files to your computer. This process may take several minutes.
Once the installation is complete, read the final instructions and click “close.”
Now find PowerPoint (it might be in the Start menu) and launch it. PowerPoint may attempt to activate automatically over the internet. When this is done, you are too. You are ready to start creating PowerPoint designs.

Record the screen in powerpoint – instructions.
Overview of How to Record the Screen in PowerPoint
Things to know before you create a screen recording in powerpoint.
You can record the screen in PowerPoint and add it to a presentation slide by using the “Screen Recording” command. You can record the video with or without audio, as desired. This helps you add a demonstration of a specific program to your presentation. To record audio with your screen recording, you must have a microphone, audio card, and speakers on your computer. The speakers let you hear what you recorded.
If you are trying to record system audio when creating a screen recording in PowerPoint, it is important to know that PowerPoint uses the default sound input device set by Windows for its audio recording. This is normally your microphone. However, some devices let you enable and select “Stereo Mix” as the sound input in Windows to record the system audio. If that is unavailable on your device and you need to record system audio, you may want to create the screen recording using a different video capture software, instead. You can then insert the video you create into PowerPoint.
How to Create a Screen Recording in PowerPoint
To insert a screen recording into a PowerPoint slide, click the “Insert” tab in the Ribbon. Then click the “Screen Recording” button in the “Media” button group. A popup box then appears at the top of the screen.
To select the screen area to record, click the “Select Area” button in the popup box. Your cursor then turns into a “crosshairs” icon. Then click and drag from the upper-left corner of the area to record down and to the right and release the mouse button when in the lower-right corner of the area to record. A dashed, red rectangle then outlines the screen area to record. Anything appearing inside the outline is recorded.
The “Audio” and “Record Pointer” buttons in the popup box are automatically selected, by default. To turn either off before you start recording, if desired, click the desired button to turn it off. Then open the program, video, or whatever content you want to record and ensure the content appears within the red recording rectangle.
To begin recording, click the “Record” button in the popup box. A three-count countdown appears before the recording starts. To stop recording in PowerPoint after you finish, click the large square button in the popup box. Alternatively, to stop recording in PowerPoint, press the “Windows logo key” + “Shift” + “Q” keys on your keyboard.

Your screen recording is then inserted into the current slide as a new slide object. To save your screen recording as an external file, if desired, right-click the screen recording object.

Then type a name for the file into the “Name:” field. Then click the “Save” button to save the screen recording.

PowerPoint Screen Recording
How to do PowerPoint screen recording?
Powerpoint screen recording - the beginning.
Did you know that PowerPoint screen recording is possible? Yes, that's right! What you're friends have been telling you is true, you can record your screen using PowerPoint 2016 onwards. (You can still record the screen with PowerPoint 2013 but you will need to install an update).
How to record screen on PowerPoint?
Without further ado let's get straight to recording the screen using PowerPoint. Either you can use the above video tutorial, which will not only showing how to do screen recoring in PowerPoint, you will also get some extra tips on drawing screen mark-ups and Zooming. Alternatively you can follow the step below:
- Open Microsoft PowerPoint .
- Click Insert . (From the Ribbon at the top of the screen).
There you have it! It's as straight forward as that. You're screen recording should now appear within a PowerPoint slide. You can play the video by clicking the small play button in the bottom left corner of the video.
Screen recording in PowerPoint 2013
This tutorial is for users of PowerPoint 2016 desktop version onwards. If you're using the online version of PowerPoint you won't find the screen recording button on the Insert tab on the ribbon. However, if you are using PowerPoint 2013 you can install an update enabling you to use screen recording in PowerPoint 2013.
Trimming a screen recording in PowerPoint
How to trim a screen recording with powerpoint.
Once you have recorded your screen in PowerPoint you might want to trim it. Especially if the recording didn't go to plan or there's extra footage at the beginning and end of the recording you want to remove. Here's how:
- Click once on the video so that white circular resize handles appear at the edges and on the corners.
Your video is now trimmed. As a tip, if you have a really long PowerPoint screen recording, why not make duplicates of the recording and then trim different bits. Then you can trim the perfect introduction or the perfect ending to your PowerPoint screen recording.
Exporting a PowerPoint Screen Recording as an MP4 file
Exporting your screen recording.
Once you have recording your screen in PowerPoint you will want to export it as an MP4 file. The MP4 format can be used in a variety of ways including you being able to upload it to YouTube, Vimeo or Microsoft Stream. Here's how you export a PowerPoint screen recording:
- Use the above instructions to record your screen with PowerPoint .
- Right click on the video in PowerPoint
- Choose where you want to save the file and click Save
That's all there is to it. Now if you have a series of videos that you have trimmed and placed on various slides then you might want to export the video the following way:
- Click File - Export
- Click Create a Video
So now you have 2 separate ways of creating a video out of your PowerPoint screen recording. I usually plum for the first one. However, if the PowerPoint screen recording is a little more lengthy then you might need to export the screen recording using the second option.
How to Zoom in and out of the Screen Recording in PowerPoint?
Screen recording in powerpoint along with zooming in and out of the screen.
Sometimes when you're watching a tutorial video it can be difficult to see what's on the screen. Especially if we're watching on a phone or other smaller screen. When recording the screen with PowerPoint, Zooming in or enlarging the screen will make it easier for viewers to see what's going on. This is how you do it:
- Start recording your screen with PowerPoint by following the above steps
- Zoom out by using the windows key and the "-" key.
Drawing on the Screen When Recording in PowerPoint
Screen annotation software.
If you have watch my video on Drawing Annotations on Teams you'll be aware of a great piece of software called ZoomIT. This is how:
- Download & Install the ZoomIT software
- Run the ZoomIT software
- To start drawing on the screen press Ctrl & 2 on the keyboard.
- Ctrl & drag to draw rectangle
- Ctrl & Shift & drag to draw arrows. (Be aware that wherever you start drawing is where the arrow head will be.
- Tab & drag to draw circle
- Type "T" to enter typing mode
- Press "Esc" to remove the markup
So there you have it! I bet you didn't think that you could record you screen with PowerPoint. I find this so handy, especially when you're training others in larger organisations. People working for banks, insurance companies etc don't have the option of installing a 3rd party screen recorder.
Most organisations, however, do have Microsoft PowerPoint installed. So now when you want to quickly record steps on how to operate a program or off the shelf system, why not consider using PowerPoint to record the screen.
