Customize Interface: Enable the Missing Developer Tab in the Ribbon

The Developer tab of the Ribbon is typically not visible within PowerPoint. To enable the Developer tab, you have to visit the PowerPoint Options dialog box. So why would you want to enable a tab that’s hidden by default? That’s because the Developer tab provides options that most PowerPoint users may not be aware of, and don’t typically use.

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.
