How To Change PowerPoint To Portrait

Most of us are so used to PowerPoint slides being in landscape mode that we don’t even think about changing the orientation. The portrait orientation can be handy if you ever need to fit a lot of information in one page.

Changing the orientation of your PowerPoint slides from landscape to portrait is a quick and easy way to fit more content onto one slide. Follow the steps below to do this:

Step 1: Open the Presentation File and Click “Design”

Launch PowerPoint and open the presentation file you want to edit. Next, click “Design” from the top ribbon.

Step 2: Click “Slide Size” > “Custom Slide Size”

Select “Slide Size” from the top-right in the Design window. Then, select “Custom Slide Size” in the popup.

Step 3: Choose “Portrait” and Click “Ok”

Select “Portrait” under Slides in the new popup. Then press “Ok”.

Step 4: Choose Between “Maximize” or “Ensure Fit”

Now, you will see two options. Select “Maximize” if you want to be able to use the full space of the size. If you want the content to fits on the vertical page, select “Ensure Fit”.

After selecting the preferred option, your slide will change to portrait mode, and you can start adding content. If you want to go back to landscape mode, simply follow the same steps but select “Landscape” in step 3.
