if you are a longtime user of Powerpoint, then you have probably come to rely on the Page Setup menu that allows you to change the size or orientation of your slide. This menu is also part of several other Microsoft Office products, and contains many helpful settings. But if you are using Powerpoint 2013 and looking for the Page Setup menu in that program, then you may be having some difficulty.

This new menu contains all of the options that were previously part of the Page Setup menu in Powerpoint 2013, it just has a new name now. Our guide below will show you where to find this menu so that you can make the changes to your slideshow.
