You can use these useful PowerPoint keyboard shortcuts when you are running a slide show to play, pause, restart and control videos during a slide show.
You can insert a video into a PowerPoint presentation from a file on your PC or from a shared server. In 2010 and later versions, video files are embedded or copied into PowerPoint by default so video files can increase file size significantly.
You can import or convert a PowerPoint presentation in PPTX format to Google Slides format in several ways. Google Slides will try to convert a PowerPoint presentation to compatible objects, tools and fonts but these programs do have differences so don’t expect a perfect conversion.
You can change the formatting of a table border or the borders of multiple table cells in PowerPoint by changing the line style, thickness (weight) or color. Different borders can be applied to cells in the same table. For example, you could apply a thick line to header cells and a thin line to the cells in the last row of a table.

You can keep words or characters (numbers or letters) together in Microsoft Word using nonbreaking spaces or hyphens. You can also turn off automatic hyphenation if Word is inserting hyphens in a word you don’t want to break across lines.
In Microsoft Word, you can insert a cross-reference to content in another part of your Word document and then update it if the target of the cross-reference changes. A cross-reference can refer to a heading, bookmark, the caption of a table or figure as well as other target items.
You can insert an em or en dash in a Microsoft Word document using the Insert Symbol command or by using keyboard shortcuts.
