How to add music to Microsoft PowerPoint?

By dwarkarao
PowerPoint has always been useful when ever we have to give any presentation. But just think if we can add music to the same which will make the presentation a better thing for the audience to understand and your presentation will definitely be an extraordinary one.

To add music to the PowerPoint presentations follow the below steps:

Step 1: Create a new PowerPoint presentation or open any existing presentation to which you want to add music.

Step 2: Make the audio file ready which you want to add to the presentation.

Step 3: Now click on the insert tab that will intern open various options where you can select the sound option.

Step 4: There will be various options coming up like Sound from file, Sound from clip organizer, Play CD audio track, and Record sound. Select the appropriate one from it.

Step 5: Now this step depends on the option that we have selected in the previous step. (You just have to select the directory where the sound file is present, that’s all)

Step 6: After you finish selecting the directory of the sound file, you will get a window which asks you have to start the sound in the presentation i.e. automatically or when clicked.

That’s it you have successfully added music to the presentation. You can see a small speaker icon coming up on your slide, you can click on it and play the music. If you have selected the automatically play option then you can test the same preview slide show mode.
