What size is a standard PowerPoint slide?
Standard (4:3) slides have a size of 10 x 7.5 inches or 25.4 x 19.05 cm. Widescreen (16:9) is the default slide size in Microsoft PowerPoint 2013, 2016 and 365. Widescreen (16:9) slides have a size of 13.33 x 7.5 inches or 33.867 x 19.05 cm.
What is the best PowerPoint slide size?
The best slide size for your PowerPoint while giving a presentation on Zoom is 16:9 or a widescreen layout. The Zoom application is designed to display content in the widescreen layout by default. Therefore, using a 4:3 standard layout will result in blank space on both sides of your slides!
How do I change a PowerPoint from 4×3 to 16×9?
Change the size of your slides
- Select the Design tab of the toolbar ribbon.
- Select Slide Size near the far right end of the toolbar.
- Select Standard (4:3 aspect ratio) or Widescreen (16:9) or Custom Slide Size.
Why might you change the slide size to 4:3 rather than widescreen?
When presenting your idea or company, it’s important to examine whether your presentation is meeting today’s professional standards. Using a 4:3 display can give the audience the impression that you’re behind the times. Instead, think about designing your slides in the cutting-edge 16: 9 format.
