The default editing view in PowerPoint is the normal view, with the Slides and Outline tabs, notes pane, and slide pane displayed. But if you prefer a different default view — say, just the slide pane with no slide thumbnails, outline, or notes — you can select one. The default view you select is the view that PowerPoint will always open in.
To change the default view:
- On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the View tab.
- Under Default View, select the view you want.
Note If you select The view saved in the file, you will get the precise view you have saved with a given file whenever you open that file. When you open other files, the original default view (normal view with Slides and Outline tabs, slide pane, and notes pane) is displayed.
