Working with QAT and Ribbons: Reset, Export, and Import Ribbon Customizations in PowerPoint

Reset, Export, and Import Ribbon Customizations in PowerPoint

PowerPoint allows you to customize the Ribbon in a number of ways. You can add Ribbon tabsadd Groups, and populate these with commands. And if you think you made a mess and were better off with the defaults, then you can always get back to square one. On a more positive front, you can share your customizations with friends and colleagues, or also your other computers. And you can export your customizations to a file saved as a backup for a rainy day!

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.
