There are many different types of shapes PowerPoint provides, and you can format these shapes by resizingrotatingflipping, etc. Other than these basic formatting tasks, you must explore the yellow square handles. When you select most shapes in PowerPoint, you can see 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. By dragging the yellow square handles, you can perform simple changes in the structure of the shape.

To learn more, choose your version of PowerPoint. If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use.
