Microsoft PowerPoint is the standard presentation tool for the digital production of both personal and professional elements, and it has remained the standard for years thanks to its excellent tools and highly advanced features.

Microsoft Office was one of the first and still remains to this day one of the most well-known products for both personal and business document, presentation, and spreadsheet production, and Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 is the version that was released in its namesake year. PowerPoint is the presentation arm of the Office software suite, and it contains all the high-powered editing features that anyone would expect from a world-class app. It also includes a wide variety of animations and transitions that are specifically designed for use within PowerPoint.

Users can also increase the creativity of their projects by adding other elements to the presentation, including video, graphs, images, hypertext, and much more. PowerPoint is also able to operate with drag-and-drop functionality in many cases, which makes it that much easier for anyone to craft amazing presentations with numerous engaging elements regardless of skill.

PowerPoint also excels at the preparation of presentations. A document summary can be used to see all the pertinent information about the file, as well as security and sharing options. Users who enjoy rehearsing their presentations will be more than able to do so with PowerPoint, even stopping and starting the presentation at any point to add notes or details to the various slides. Users can even record the presentation as a video through their screen and watch it for ways to improve its flow. PowerPoint also has support for SharePoint, which means the presentations can be viewed online using Windows Live.

There are a few changes to the interface with Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 from older versions. First, the tool uses the 2010 Ribbon Interface, which is surprisingly adept at making the app easy to use. This interface can be customized so that different elements appear in more convenient places for each individual user, and only the tools most vital for the current task are shown. This version of PowerPoint is one of the most comprehensive ever created.

It has always been known that Microsoft Office contains a number of features in each app that are often overlooked, but the new Ribbon Interface makes these features much more readily available. Once users get past the change to the interface, the software becomes increasingly easy to use, even beyond the older versions that seemed easier but buried some of the most advanced features.

There aren't many other presentation products that function as smoothly and comprehensively as PowerPoint. The app is easy enough for anyone to use, and it is complex enough for experts to make good use of its high-end features. There are few reasons why anyone needing a presentation tool wouldn't use PowerPoint.
