How to Change the Resolution of a Powerpoint Presentation


By the time you are finished preparing a PowerPoint presentation, it can become so bloated in size due to large graphics or video-intense slides that it performs poorly, takes a long time to open or runs sluggish during your presentation. You can improve performance and accelerate your PowerPoint deck by lowering the slide resolution.

  • Open your PowerPoint presentation. Click on the "Slide Show" tab in the ribbon.

  • Click on the "Monitors" group. This group displays the options for how the slide show should appear on the monitor.

  • Click on the "Resolution" drop-down menu. Select a resolution from between the lowest, fastest fidelity, which is 640x480 to 1440x900, or the slowest, highest fidelity. The lower the resolution, the faster your performance, but the image quality will be poorer. Alternately, boost the visual quality of your images by selecting the highest resolution your projector and computer can handle.
