While you may only think of Powerpoint as something that you show to others over a projector, or share as a digital file, it has a surprisingly robust selection of print options.
Whether you want to print each slide on a full page of paper, or include your speaker notes along with the slide, you have some options that let you configure what you want to print and how you want to print it. One of the options available to you is to print your presentation as an outline. This simplifies the presentation into a list where the title of each slide is listed. Our guide below will show you how to print an outline in Powerpoint for Office 365.
