In this article, we want to talk about fonts and the fact that how can you install a new font on your PowerPoint? Letters and words are necessary on your slides because no matter how important images are, they must have a title.

I attached this font for you, and I’ll teach you how to install this font into your computer in the next lesson.
If you want to make the font larger, you need to click on the text, and here you can choose the font size, and I suggest you use as large as possible font size because your audience is not able to read the small fonts.
Also, here you can change the color of the text; for example, I want to change the love. Or my shirt color for the entire text, but I use the red for “love.”
I can move this text box or rotate it. One of the most useful tools in PowerPoint is format painter. If you have separated forms and you want to use the same style for your text you can copy the format from other text and paste it on the new text first you need to select the text.

How to add bullets and numbers to my presentation text?
First, I put this on the left corner of the page and add a word to it.
