Posted on March 26, 2009. Filed under: Powerpoint Tips |

Alot of powerpoints have music playing throughot the entire show. How do i do tht? And i want the same song.

To play background music across a whole PowerPoint presentation:

1. Open the presentation you wish to use the Background Music Loop upon, or create a new blank presentation in PowerPoint.
2. Select the slide you wish to insert the Background Music Loop.
3. Select “Slide Transition” from the Slide Show menu option. A Slide Transition pop-up window should appear.
4. Select the “Sound” pull down form in the lower right hand corner of the pop-up window.
5. Scroll down to the very bottom of the form until you see “Other Sound …”
6. Select “Other Sound”. The “Add Sound” pop-up window should now appear.
7. Navigate to the Background Music Loop that you wish to use on your hard drive and select the file.
8. The Slide Transition pop-up window should appear again, with the name of the Background Music Loop .WAV file in the sound form.
9. To loop the Background Music Loop, select the tick box, “Loop until next sound”.
10. Choose “Apply” (NOT apply to all) and you should return to the original page.
11. Select “View Show” from the Slide Show menu option to hear the looped sound.
