Developed by Microsoft and included in its Office suite of productivity software, PowerPoint is one of the world's leading presentation applications. It lets you create slide-based presentations that can be shown on a computer screen, displayed on a projector or television, or printed in hard-copy form. As with other Windows-based programs, the list of fonts that can be used PowerPoint depends on the kinds of type faces installed in Windows' central Fonts folder. Once you understand the proper steps, adding a font you downloaded from into Windows and making it available to PowerPoint becomes a quick task.
