I use PowerPoint for just about everything I need graphic-wise. I go way beyond just slides. YouTube introduced End Screens in 2016, and YouTubers can add these thumbnails to the last 5-20 seconds of their videos. They can be set up to point to your other videos, other channels, subscription link, your Website, and more.
I created my End Screen template because the thumbnails would set on top of my tips video and hide some of the information. This slide-turned-video leaves space for the video link YouTube adds.
PowerPoint Tips You’ll Learn
Watch this video whether you have a YouTube channel or not because you’ll learn lots of PowerPoint tips. Here are some of them:
Resize a slide.
Format slide background with gradient fill.
Frame a slide with a rectangle shape.
Align objects horizontally and vertically.
Create more guides and also how to remove them.
Animate objects to appear automatically at the right time.
Use the Shape Tool to totally transform a shape.
Select multiple objects with your mouse.
And probably more that I forgot. Just watch!
Here’s My Video
And here’s my video on how I used PowerPoint to create my End Screen template (related videos are below also).
Leave a comment, Like, Share. Thank you. Feel free to leave a link to yours (if you use PowerPoint) in a comment. Would love to see it.
I also mentioned two some other videos related to this, and here are the links.
If you add animation to one or more slides, or timed transitions between them, you can save the presentation as a high resolution video that is sized for the big screen. This video shows you how to export a slide that’s already created, not how to create the slide and add animations (I’ll create a different video for that).
Note: I recorded this video in PowerPoint 2013, and although the output provides the option for 1080p resolution, native PowerPoint would only output to 720p. UPDATE: I’ve found an Add-In from a PowerPoint expert that outputs to 1080p. http://skp.mvps.org/videotools.htm
Let me know what you think about this video. How can I improve my videos?
I’m pretty sure I use this shortcut every day. When I want to increase or decrease text to a certain size that I’m not sure of, I don’t go back and forth to the ribbon or use any command that requires me to choose a size.
Here’s my favorite shortcut that I use in Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook. It’s not the one you may have been using.
Hope this helps. Feel free to comment and share. #SuiteTuesday
There’s a little bar at the top of your screen in the Office software. Chances are that you’ve never paid it any attention. I use it all day.
The Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) allows you to add shortcuts to commands you use often. This real quick video shows you how to customize it with commands that are there by default as well as any you choose from the ribbon.
Hope this helps. Feel free to comment and share. #SuiteTuesday
I watched a client minimize all her open documents and software to get to the Windows Desktop. She smacked her head when I showed her this.

I’m often amazed how Microsoft seems to know just what we need, but then fails to let us know about it. In addition to the Screenshot command provided in your Office software, they’ve also provided a free Snipping Tool you can use anywhere.
In this video, I’ll show you how to find the tool on your computer and how to use it. Be sure not to miss the Delay feature!

I’m setting up a video “studio” in my small home office. No matter the setup, having a traditional tripod with those wide legs just wasn’t working. This gadget just arrived, and it’s perfect. It’s a desktop tripod mount.
It clamps onto my desk, and has a tripod mount that works with my iPhone case (it has a tripod connector).
I still haven’t decided on my video platform, but with one more problem solved, I’ll figure it out soon.
My 2-Minute rule in Outlook defers delivery of a message so I have plenty of time to get it from the Outbox, make a change, and resend.
Google recently made it possible for the masses to UNSEND a message in Gmail, and I recorded this quick video to show you how.
Outlook is my preferred email client, and I organize and manage my life with it. For training, call me. I conduct workshops, conference seminars, Webinars, and individual SKYPE sessions. I also have some pre-recorded lessons here.
I signed up for golf lessons this summer, and am liking it so much, I invested in new clubs, club covers, a stand bag, new shoes and, of course, new outfits. But one thing I didn’t like was struggling with my golf bag when I went to practice on the driving range. I started researching and found a highly-rated, one-click folding 4-wheel golf push cart byCaddyTek.
This thing is solid! Very well-built, and came with very detailed instructions on how to work with it.
But I had a time trying to figure out how to open and close it.
I went to my university, YouTube, looking for a how-to video, and found exactly what I needed. The video I’ve included in this post was recorded by the company that makes it. I had to laugh when I saw how easy everything was as compared to what I was doing with it.
If you’re selling something, consider explaining how to use it with video. It does the work of a thousand photos and totally replaces that booklet. What are you selling or teaching that would be so much easier for us to learn with video?
