When you select shapes for resizing inside PowerPoint, most shapes will show eight resizing handles and a single rotation handle. In addition, some shapes also have yellow Square / Diamond handles which enable you to change the appearance of the selected shape. Using these Square / Diamond handles, you can use PowerPoint’s smiling face shape, and make it a frowning face!

The way you use these yellow diamond handles to resize shapes is more or less the same across various PowerPoint versions:

Microsoft Windows

Manipulating Shapes by Dragging Yellow Squares in PowerPoint 2013

Manipulating Shapes by Dragging Diamonds in PowerPoint 2010

Apple Mac
