Let’s say you have to send a presentation to someone urgently, but the second person doesn’t have PowerPoint installed on his PC. Then it’s better idea to convert the presentation into video and then give it to him. There are various tools available which convert PowerPoint presentation into video but most of them are not free.

Go to Microsoft PowerPoint and create a new Slide. After you finish up with completing new slide, click on the “File” tab.

On right you can see the video settings. In “seconds to spend on each slide” area, set the time for the each slide. If you choose 5 seconds for each slide then each slide will play for 5 seconds in the video.
