Hi my name is Dave Andrews. Today I'm going to show you how to create a slide show with music. Let's go to our computer and I'm going to open up Microsoft PowerPoint for this by clicking on the Start button, I'm going to go to all programs, let's find Microsoft Office and click on PowerPoint. Now I'm going to create some background music that I want to start playing as soon as my slide show begins. To so that I'm going to click on the insert tab at the top and over here on the right, I'm going to go sound and click on that. Now choose the sound file that you would like to play as your background music. I'm just going to pick one of these here, going to go with the blues and click OK. Now it asks you how would you like this music to play in the slide show. I'm going to click on automatically and that has put a little horn icon on the middle of our slide. So what I want to do is I want to click on hide during show with that horn selected under the options tab there's a check box that says hide during show, I'm going to click on that and then there's also a drop down that says play sound, I'm going to change that from automatically to say play across slides. Now I'm going to put some slides in here, this is my first slide and I'm going to insert a new slide and this is my second slide. Now if I go back to my first slide and I begin my slide show by clicking on the slide show tab and clicking from beginning, you should hear the music start playing immediately. So there's the music playing, even if I move to the next slide by pressing the space bar, the music is still playing across all of my slides. So it's that easy to add music to the background of your presentations. My name is Dave Andrews and I've just showed you how to add background music to a slide show.
