The Status Bar

The Status Bar, located at the bottom of the PowerPoint application window, shows basic information about your presentation and enables you to change your view settings. Specific items on the Status Bar include:

  1. Slide number.
  2. Notes pane button. Click to enable the Notes pane (new to PowerPoint 2013).
  3. Comments pane button. Click to enable the Comments pane (new to PowerPoint 2013).
  4. View controls. You can choose from a variety of views (Normal, Slide Sorter, Reading, and Slide Show).
  5. Zoom control. You can zoom in or out to make the presentation bigger or smaller based on your personal viewing preference. Zooming changes the size of what you're viewing, not the print-out size.
