Get Back the ‘Send to PowerPoint’ Option/ Unlock the hidden Send to PowerPoint option in Word 2007

In the versions earlier than 2007 a well structured document can be send to PowerPoint and it got converted to slides automatically. Word 2007 don’t come with this option. This was an option very useful for the Office users but Microsoft has hidden this option!.Here is how to get it back.
The function is actually in there but hidden.

  1. To get tit back click on the Office Button on the top left corner in Word and select ‘Word Options’ from it.
  2. Now in the dialog box select ‘Customize’.
  3. Now from the ‘ Choose commands from : ‘ drop down menu select the option ‘All Commands’.See that ‘For all documents’ option is selected else you can get that option only for the current document you are working with now.
  4. Now, look for the command ‘Send to Microsoft PowerPoint’ and click ‘Add’ and click ‘OK’.

From now on you can send a document to powerpoint from the quick access bar.
