I hope you agree with the fact line, “PowerPoint is the widely-used presentation software!”

But the surprise is that how many of you know you can screen record your entire presentation using the same. Interesting, right?

What if I told you that adding your favorite music to the presentation video you record is possible?

How To Record The Video?

Step 1: Open the slide you want to screed record.

Step 2: Select the Screen Recording option on the Insert tab of the ribbon.
