Interface Overview: Slide Area in PowerPoint

The Slide Area is one of three principal regions in PowerPoint, and the other two being the Slides Pane and the Notes Pane. This is the area where you work the most, typically through adding and editing slide objects. The Slide area includes three elements – the actual slide, the slide workspace, and the scrollbars that let you navigate between slides.
