How to Install PowerPoint

Microsoft’s PowerPoint software is an industry-leading presentation software that is excellent for talks and presentations where slides of text and graphics need to appear on a screen. Installing PowerPoint on your computer after purchasing it is easy to do.

Launch the Setup Program

Microsoft’s professional Powerpoint software is often bundled into the paid Microsoft Office suite of software. Microsoft doesn’t offer free installation of Powerpoint.

For the purpose of this tutorial, we’ll outline the basic steps of installing Microsoft Office 2010 — and as an extension Powerpoint — onto your computer from a DVD.

  • First, put your Microsoft Office 2010 DVD into your computer’s optical disc drive and close the door.
  • The installation program may begin running on its own when you do this, or you may have to manually locate and run “SETUP.EXE.”
  • Sometimes, Windows requests the user to give permission to launch the installer. If this happens, grant permission and continue.

Understand Your Product Key

The Microsoft Office installation program will ask for a 25-character “product key.” This is a long string of numbers and letters — rather like a serial number — that Microsoft employs as a copy protection device. It’s designed to prevent the user — or more than one user — from using PowerPoint (and the whole Microsoft Office suite) on more computers than the license agreement allows.

A product key is arranged like this, with the 25-characters broken up into five groups of five:


If a product key becomes damaged, Microsoft can help users obtain a replacement.

The product key will probably be included somewhere within the packaging (perhaps in the DVD case) of your Microsoft Office software.

Enter Your Product Key

When entering the product key, Windows will supply the dashes automatically. You won’t have to add them in yourself. Take care to type in the product key precisely as it appears on your sticker. When complete, the installer will check the product key’s authenticity. PowerPoint will need to be activated the first time you use it. If you want PowerPoint to attempt this automatically, check the “Attempt to automatically activate my product online” button and click “continue” to proceed.

Agree to the License Terms

Next, be sure to read the complete Microsoft software license terms. Agreeing to the terms is the only way to use PowerPoint. If you opt out by closing the installer at this point, you won’t be able to use your new software. Once you’ve read the terms and agree, check the “I accept the terms of this agreement” box and choose “continue.”

Install and Finish

The installer will ask you to choose a type of installation. “Install now” uses the default settings, while “customize” can be used by advanced users to tweak the Office installation just the way they want it. In this tutorial, we’ll assume you chose “install now,” which will install PowerPoint along with the rest of the Office package.

Click “install now.” The Office setup program gets to work copying the required files to your computer. This process may take several minutes.

Once the installation is complete, read the final instructions and click “close.”

Now find PowerPoint (it might be in the Start menu) and launch it. PowerPoint may attempt to activate automatically over the internet. When this is done, you are too. You are ready to start creating PowerPoint designs.
