While the content that you include on the slides in your Powerpoint presentation will often vary from slide to slide, there might be information or page elements that you would like to include on every slide. Whether this is your name, your company name, or the title of the presentation, it can be helpful to put that information in your presentation automatically at the same spot on every slide.
You can accomplish this by adding a footer to your presentation. Once you add one you have the ability to include several different elements that might be helpful. Our tutorial below will show you where to find and add the footer in Powerpoint 2013.
