Shapes play a significant role within any slides you create for your PowerPoint presentation. In many ways, shapes are like the building blocks of almost anything you do on your PowerPoint slides. PowerPoint provides hundreds of shapes efficiently categorized into 9 types or categories. You can do so much with these shapes. For example, you can combine shapes to create your own unique shapes, format shapes with fills, lines, and effects, and even group or layer them to create more amazing graphics. You can even create flowcharts with these shapes.

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.
