powerpointAs you know, majority of TV screens (and therefore computer screens or displays) have an aspect ratio of 16:9. The previous, but still used video aspect ratio was of 4:3.  Powerpoint 2010 uses such an old aspect ratio with the consequence that, when viewing a presentation on a 16:3 screen, you will notice two annoying, black vertical bands or bars preventing you from using the whole computer display surface. This quick trick will change Powerpoint aspect ration from the default 4:3 to 16:9.

  1. Open the Powerpoint 2010 presentation.
  2. Click the Design tab.
  3. Click Page Setup which should be the first option on the left.
  4. A small window will appear on the screen. On such a screen you will notice a section named “Slides Sized for”. This is the Powerpoint aspect ratio option.
  5. Choose On-Screen Show (16:9) option and click OK.
