- In the top left, under "Start a new presentation," click New Add. This will create and open your new presentation.
- You can also create new presentations from the URL https://slides.google.com/create.
Step 2: Edit and format a presentation
You can add, edit, or format text, images, or videos in a presentation.

Step 4: Choose who to share with & how they can use your file
Share with specific people
If you use a Google Account through work or school, you might not be able to share files outside of your organization.
1. Under "People," enter the email address you want to share with. If you share with an email address that isn’t a Google Account, they’ll only be able to view the file.
2. To choose what someone can do with your file, click the Down arrow Down
3. If you don’t want to send an email to people, click Advanced and uncheck the Notify people box. If you notify people, each email address you enter will be included in the email.
Step 5: Limit the Number of People who can View the Files
When you share a file with someone, you can choose what they can do with it.
View: People can view, but can’t change or share the file with others.
Comment: People can make comments and suggestions, but can’t change or share the file with others.
Edit: People can make changes, accept or reject suggestions, and share the file with others.
What is the difference between Powerpoint and Google Slides?
