When you create a presentation using Microsoft PowerPoint, you can add text, images and objects to slides to enhance them. The slideshows you develop may be projected on a screen for training or for a meeting, or viewed by individuals on their computers. PowerPoint presentations may be printed as well. Adjust the margins to ensure no text or images are cut off before printing a PowerPoint slide presentation.


Launch PowerPoint and open the presentation for which you want to adjust the paper margins.


Click the “File” menu and select the “Page Setup” option, which will launch a separate dialog window.


Click the “Slides Sized For” menu and select the “Custom” option. Type the desired margin measurements in the “Height” and “Width” fields, according to the page size. For example, half-inch margins for all edges of an 8.5-inch by 11-inch portrait-oriented page should be listed as 7.5 inches in the Width field and 10 inches in the Height field. Click the “OK” button.
