How to add icons in PowerPoint?
Icons may be just the thing to spice up your presentation. They are both meaningful, illustrative, and universal. The reason icons work is that they take a single concept and reduces it to a simple shape. When people see an icon, they don’t really see the symbol as much they know what it represents.
If you are using subscription PowerPoint office 365, you can see icon option as you go through the insert tab in the ribbon.
By clicking on that, you can see a list of icons if you have the Internet.
Now select the icons you like and click on the insert.

The reality is that they are all unnecessary extra loads on memory that Reduces the memory’s performance.
If you see Steve Jobs’s slides, then you don’t see any of this extra information applied to his presentations.
The other kind of extra load is like this one.
You are bringing three points together in the same slide, which distracts your audience, and as you’re explaining about the first point, the audience pays attention to the others at the same time.
The true way is using standard load, which means that you should present each of these points one by one, Respectively.
