PowerPoint allows you to format and present the content of your slides in various ways. If you want to print or display your PowerPoint slides in larger or smaller than average size, you can adjust the slide dimensions to match.
Changing PowerPoint slide sizes
PowerPoint has two common slide sizes. The first, 4: 3, is a good option if you use older hardware to present your slides. If you plan to present your PowerPoint presentation with a modern projector or display, the 1
PowerPoint will default to the 16: 9 side slide. To print your slides (full size, one per page), you should probably use a custom slide size instead of one of these options. Fortunately, switching to a different format is an easy process: open your PowerPoint presentation to get started, and then click the "Design" tab on the ribbon bar.
In the "Customize" section of the "Design" tab, select the "Slide Size" button. This will display the two general slide sizes in a drop-down menu.
Click the "Standard (4: 3)" or "Widescreen (16: 9)" option to switch all your PowerPoint slides to that format.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to use multiple slide sizes in a PowerPoint presentation. Just as if you make PowerPoint slides vertical, any changes you make to the sizes of your PowerPoint slides apply to all slides.
