In this post I will describe how can we Activate the PowerPoint Feature. Just keep on reading.

Once we select the Options command from the drop-down menu, the PowerPoint Options dialog box appears as shown below. From this dialog box, we make sure that the General area is selected from the left of the dialog box. We then scroll down in this dialog box until we locate the area named PowerPoint Designer as shown in the image below.
