When you open Microsoft PowerPoint, thumbnails in the frame are displayed by default in the left pane. PowerPoint lets you hide, view or even resize these thumbnails. Like this.
Manipulate image mines
Everyone has a different working style. Some may prefer to keep the image diameter to create a sketch or easily navigate between slides when editing. But some may find them distracting or intrusive and as such would like to hide or reduce their size. Both are relatively easy to achieve.
Go ahead and open PowerPoint. By default, you should be in PowerPoint's "Normal" view mode. If you are not, go to the "View" tab and click the "Normal" button.
Once in Normal view, thumbnails appear on
To reduce the thumbnails, click and drag the split line to the left.
Further on the left, drag the splitter bar, the smaller the thumbnails become. To completely hide the thumbnails, pull the drawbar to the left until they disappear.
If you have hidden the thumbnails but need to show them again, click the arrow above "Thumbnails" on the left side.
To increase the size of the thumbnails, click and drag the split line to the right.
Another quick way to change thumbnails is to hover the cursor over the thumbnail preview box and then use the mouse scroll wheel while holding the Ctrl key. However, you cannot completely hide the thumbnails using this method.
Changing the PowerPoints Default View
If you often hide the image memory images while working in PowerPoint, consider changing the default view where PowerPoint opens.
To do this, go to the "File" tab and then select "Options" at the bottom of the left window.
The "PowerPoint Options" window appears. Select "Advanced."
Scroll down to the "View" section and then select the arrow next to "Open all documents with this view" to display menu items.
In the menu, select the display style you want to use by default. There are many different options to choose from, many of which do not include image memory.
Finally, click "OK" to confirm the change. PowerPoint will open in the selected video style the next time you use it.
