PowerPoint is a slideshow editor that offers its users a number of functions and features, one of them being the ability to create notes on your slides. While it’s a pretty cool thing, if you need to recycle a presentation, you might need to remove all the notes you made earlier.
Instead of deleting each one manually, be aware that the editor has a feature capable of deleting them all at once. If this is the intention, be aware that this procedure can be performed extremely quickly and practically. Check out how below!
