Microsoft Word/Microsoft word help needed urgent


Please help me!
I have a science report due and it needs to be a power point! The problem is I don't have Microsoft power point only Microsoft word.
How do I make a word document look like a power point?

Unfortunately, you cannot make a Word document look like a PowerPoint. Can you go to the Library and work on your project from there.  Word uses pages and PowerPoint uses Slides with placeholders.

On second thought, one possibility way is to change the orientation of your Word pages from Portrait to Landscape, then use textboxes to enter bullets.  Adding themes, etc, would be something that you would have to figure out since you are one that knows the project intimately.

My first option would be to use the local library instead of trying to replicate a PowerPoint by using a Word page.

Good luck.
