PowerPoint is my life

“PowerPoint is My Life”, has been my mantra at the office for quite some time now.

As we drudge through the daily chore that is PowerPoint and are evidently tasked with “making it pretty”, I wanted to share these top 18 PowerPoint 2010 Keyboard Shortcuts that have come extremely handy. If it seems overwhelming, try practicing one shortcut a week  or printing out the list and having it sit next to your monitor for a quick reference.
