File Types, File Menu, and Backstage View: Account Tab in Backstage View in PowerPoint

In PowerPoint, and in other Office programs you typically need to sign in to a Microsoft Account so that you can access saved settings, customizations, and even some files off the cloud. You typically do this by managing your Account, right inside PowerPoint or another Office program such as Word and Excel. The Account tab in Backstage view allows you to sign in to your Microsoft Account, and automatically connect to your OneDrive account.

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.
