03:19 Title bar, Menu bar, Standard toolbar, Formatting bar, Status bar, and Sidebar.
03:30 We will learn more about the toolbars as the series progresses.

03:47 Click on the textbox that says Click to add Title.
03:53 Now type “Benefit of Open Source” inside it and click anywhere outside the textbox.
04:02 Next, click on the textbox that says Click to add Text.
04:08 Here type “A1 services” inside it and click anywhere outside the textbox.
04:17 So, this is how we add content inside a slide.
04:22 Now let us save the presentation for future use.
04:28 To save the file, click on the Save icon in the Standard toolbar.
04:34 A dialog box appears on the screen.
04:38 It prompts us to enter the name of our file in the Name field.
04:44 I will type the name of the file as “Sample-Impress”.

05:30 Click on the Save button at the top right corner of the dialog box.

07:34 Select PowerPoint 2007-365 (.pptx) file format.
07:43 Choose the location as Desktop to save the file.
07:48 Click on the Save button at the top right corner.
07:53 If we save the file in any other file format, Confirm File Format dialog box opens up.
08:01 Put a check on “Ask when not saving in ODF or default format” option.
08:09 Finally, click on the “Use PowerPoint 2007-365 Format button.
08:18 The file is now saved as a dot pptx file.
