Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video PowerPoint versions, part of Learning PowerPoint 2019.
- [Instructor] Before we jump into learning PowerPoint, first take a moment to check which version of PowerPoint you're using. PowerPoint comes either as part of an Office 365 subscription or as a standalone product. the current version as of this recording being PowerPoint 2019. And although the 2019 and Office 365 versions are very similar, there are features in the Office 365 version that aren't available in the 2019 version. The course you're watching right now is for the standalone version of PowerPoint, PowerPoint 2019. To check which version you're using on your own computer, first open up PowerPoint.
Then open up a new presentation. I'll just double-click this blank presentation here, and we'll be talking about this presentation gallery very shortly. From here click file, and then account, And here under product information you'll see which version of PowerPoint you're using. If it says Office 365 or subscription product, you have the Office 365 version. If it has the year listed in the name, or it doesn't specify either way, then you have the standalone version. If you find you have the subscription version, you'll wanna switch over to the learning PowerPoint for Office 365 course instead.
But if you're using PowerPoint 2019, you're ready to go. I'll close this presentation, and now we're ready to get started.
