Most of the well-known features of Powerpoint are there with little change; the most noticeable for some users might be the ribbon, and many of the changes are just tweaks to keep Powerpoint in line with other Office products.

The biggest improvement is the "Presenter View", the facility for the projector to show the usual display, while the presenter's screen shows the projected screen in one corner, with a mini-view of the next slide in the other corner. The speaker can also see his/her notes, and the elapsed time. There are controls to blank the screen, to write on the screen or use a "laser pointer", to get a quick view of all slides to find one out of sequence, and to move to the previous or next slides.

It is easier to set up a master screen and variations on themes, there are "smart guides" to help with alignment, and better shapes, animations and charts. Inserted video and audio accept more formats.

Unfortunately, while there were free Powerpoint viewers for earlier versions, there isn't a free viewer which can handle Powerpoint 2013 files. Of course it can save in older formats, but them some of the goodies are no longer available.

Two warnings:
1) This needs Windows 7 or 8; it will not work with Windows XP. (I have licensed copies for my two Windows 7 machines, but could not install on a third machine which has XP).

2) When it is ordered, Amazon send an email with a download link. Some webmail systems are not capable of presenting that email so that a clickable link is available.

This took ages to download - don't think you can download it quickly and use it, like I did. It took a call to Amazon help line and a wait of two hours to eventually have a copy I could use. Seems ok to use - just complicated to look at - as I'm used to a previous version. Not sure if the files are compatible yet, as I'm having a few issues

This has lots of good enhancements compared to earlier versions. Needed some help from microsoft to complete a satisfactory installation but was worth the trouble. recommended.

Very useful to obtain online and upload rather than taking the time out to drive to shop to buy the disc
