how to create and launching presentations in google slides

To create a new presentation in Google Slides, use one of the following methods:

  • Google Drive: New > Google Slides


  • Google Slides (browser, Chromebook, or app): Press the “+” symbol to create a new file.


If you are creating a new presentation using the browser or Chromebook versions of Google Slides, you will be prompted to choose a theme:

The Google slides app for phones and tablets does not have the ability to change themes. When the app creates a new presentation, it shows the title slide and options for basic edits.


The browser and chromebook versions of Google Slides save automatically as you add text, formatting, and other elements. The Google Slides mobile app may require tapping the checkmark icon to save certain changes.


A presentation can be launched using the following methods:


  • Browser/Chromebook: Press the Present button in the upper-right corner of the toolbar area.


  • Mobile app: Tap the triangular icon at the top of the screen (see screenshot, below).


While Microsoft PowerPoint files can be launched within Google Slides, note that the original formatting and animations may not be reflected in the presentation that plays on the screen. For this reason, I advise launching .ppt and .pptx files using PowerPoint, which is part of Microsoft Office.


How to import and convert PowerPoint files :

While Google Slides can import and export PowerPoint files (.ppt and .pptx), formatting does not translate well. This is a particularly serious issue for users who attempt to convert a beautiful PowerPoint presentation. Colors, fonts, shadows, and other elements may appear drastically different in Slides. PowerPoint animations may not work at all.


Fortunately, Google Slides has enabled limited editing of PowerPoint slides . This makes it possible to make simple text and formatting changes in an imported PowerPoint file without having to convert it to Google Slides.


To import a .ppt or .pptx file using the browser and Chromebook versions of Google Slides, follow these steps:


1 .  Open Google Drive, click new and select Upload files.


2 .  Find the PowerPoint files (.ppt or .pptx) that you want to use in Slides.


3 .  A box will appear on the screen, notifying you that the upload is taking place.


4 .  Once completed, the PowerPoint files can be identified by the “P” icon in the list of files on Google Drive or in Google Slides.


If you can’t find the PowerPoint file, it may have been automatically converted to Slides. To prevent Drive from automatically converting PowerPoint files, click the gear icon to access settings and deselect the conversion option for Microsoft imports.


To convert an imported PowerPoint file to Slides format for editing, open the file select File > Open with Google Slides.


How to export a presentation :

To export or convert a Google Slides presentation, use File > Download As in the browser or Chromebook versions of Google Slides. Presentations can be converted to the following formats:


  • PowerPoint (.pptx). Note that formatting may not be preserved in the exported .pptx file.


  • PDF


  • Image formats. Individual slides can be exported as .jpg, .png or .svg files.


  • Exported files will contain the text of the original spreadsheet, but no other elements.


If you are using an Android or Apple phone or tablet, export options are limited to PowerPoint files. To access this feature, tap the More icon (which looks like three vertical dots) and select Share & export > Save as PowerPoint (.pptx).


How to add slides to a presentation :

To create a new slide, follow these steps:



1 .  Click the button with a plus symbol in the upper left corner of the toolbar, or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-M.


2 .  The drop-down menu next to the “+” button lets you choose various formats (“blank”, “title with two columns”, etc.)


If you have created a complicated slide or formatting that you want to reproduce on another slide, use Insert > Duplicate and the delete the text and elements you no longer need.



1 .  Tap the Add slide button.


2 .  Choose a blank slide or one of the preformatted slide options.
