Building a Slide

When you open a blank presentation, PowerPoint provides you with one blank title slide. A title slide contains two placeholders, a title and a subtitle. When you insert a slide, a title and content slide is inserted by default. This contains a title placeholder where you enter the topic for the slide and a placeholder for inserting bulleted points for that topic.
