Microsoft PowerPoint allows you to work in several presentations at one time. This gives you the flexibility to use information from one presentation to another, quickly look up how you worded something in a different presentation or simply get ideas from a different presentation. There are several ways to switch back and forth:

1. Using the menus:
        ~ Click on Window in the menu bar. A listing of open presentations will display.
        ~ Click on the presentation in which you want to view.

2. Using the keyboard:
        ~ To move to the next open presentation hold down the Ctrl key while you tap the F6 key.
        ~ You can continue to tap the F6 key, while holding down the Ctrl key, to rotate through all of the open presentations.

3. Use the Task Bar in PowerPoint 2000 and 2002
        ~ A PowerPoint icon will be displayed on the task bar for every presentation you have open. Click on the icon to switch to that presentation. Hint: if you place your mouse pointer over the icon (hover, don't click) then the name of the presentation will display. If you have not saved a presentation it will simply state Presentation1 (or a different number depending on how many presentations you have been creating).
