Q: How do I print my PowerPoint as a handout?


In Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 and later, you can easily print a handout of your slideshow. Open your PowerPoint presentation, then follow these steps:

  1. Open the File menu
  2. Open the Print menu
  3. Under the Print Settings, change the "Full Page Slides" option to the type of handout that you want. You have options to print:
    • 1 slide per page
    • 2 slides per page
    • 4 slides per page (horizontal or vertical)
    • 6 slides per page (horizontal or vertical)
    • 9 slides per page (horizontal or vertical)

When you print your handout, it will automatically print with the date and page number. To these defaults:

  1. Leave the Print menu and open the View menu
  2. Click "Handout Master"
  3. Change the settings
  4. Click "Close the Master View"
  5. Follow the instructions above to print
