That surely is possible. But I think if you're not versed in macro programming it's much faster to do it manually.

It would be nice of Powerpoint, like Word, had 'styles'. Then changing the font of all objects having a certain style would be one single operation. But I'm afraid Powerpoint doesn't have such.

I'm no seasoned powerpoint user, but isn't it possible to change multiple slide styles by editing the Master slides? (View menu > Master > Slide Master) - I did a quick test and it seemed to work for me...

Seems a good idea.

My use of Powerpoint is limited to pressing <page down> on presentations made by other people. You don't learn much about the program that way :-(.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
