How do I change my PowerPoint presentation from standard to widescreen?

PowerDesigns 5-in-1 Package > Support Help
PowerPoint 2010 and earlier has a default screen size of 4:3. PowerPoint 2013 changed that to make the default screen size 16:9. In PowerPoint, you can change the aspect ratio at any time. Keep in mind that everything in your presentation slides will change size and look distorted. If your presentation is 4:3 and you change it to 16:9, everything will be stretched wider. The way to avoid this is to start a new blank presentation in PowerPoint, make it 16:9 and then copy and paste the contents of each slide one at a time into your new presentation. Then you can make any changes you need to to your slide content without it being the wrong size.
