Microsoft PowerPoint has grow / shrink functionality which can be used to zoom in and out. Enlarge or shrink PowerPoint slides and preserve your eyes. PowerPoint Zoom in and out controls are located in the lower-right corner of the PowerPoint screen and on the View tab. The Zoom box tells you at what percentage you’re currently viewing slides.
