What is Microsoft PowerPoint

Microsoft PowerPoint is a presentation program that allows users to create engaging presentations for slide shows, meetings, and web pages. This software has all qualities of an application software, it allows users to quickly and easily create professional looking presentations that include pre-defined designs and the ability to create animations.
 
 

Origin of PowerPoint

PowerPoint was developed by Robert Gaskins, and was originally given the name Presenter. It was released under a company called Forethought because Gaskins joined the company and began work on PowerPoint by hiring a developer named Dennis Austin.
 
Gaskins main idea was to develop an easy to use presentation program based on a series of slides. The slideshows, graphics, bulleted lists and advanced functions that we all know PowerPoint for were not actually Robert Gaskins original ideas for PowerPoint. 
 
Microsoft saw the potentials of PowerPoint`s regardless. Seeing the explosion in business software and office automation, Microsoft seized the opportunity and bought PowerPoint for $14 million.  They started developing the software by adding nice features and upgrading every functionalities, taking it to new heights with the release of PowerPoint 97.
 
By eliminating the need for programming knowledge or specialist skills (making it more user-friendly), PowerPoint 97 granted personal computer users access to filmesque features like transitions and animations.
 
From version 97 onwards, Microsoft went through major upgrades with every release of PowerPoint. 
 
New version was released on average every two years, spreading through offices like wildfire. The 2000 version of PowerPoint introduced a clipboard feature that could hold multiple objects at once.
