Pinning Favorites

In PowerPoint 2010, you can pin presentations you need to access often to make finding them nearly effortless. Within the Backstage view is the Recent Presentations list.

To access the Recent Presentations list:

  1. Click the File tab.
  2. Click Recent.

Here you will see a list of recently accessed presentations. This list changes based on the different files that you open and work with, and by default, the list is generated automatically by PowerPoint.

If you have a presentation you work with often, you can "pin" it to the list. This way, it will always appear in the Recent Presentations list. To pin a presentation to the Recent Presentations list, just click the pin icon next to the presentation you wish to keep in the list.

Notice that the pin changes to a push pin.

If you decide you no longer want the presentation to appear in the Recent Presentations list, simply click the push pin icon to remove it.
