People usually do not use the Macro option, which is not a clever thing to do. Macros are very helpful for saving time. For example, if you record a text, which you need most of the time, you do not need to write it repeatedly. If you do not know how to enable Macro in PowerPoint then you must read this article to the end. Many people think that there is no Macro in PowerPoint. Actually, you have to turn on an option then you will see some extra tools including the Macro. In this article, I will show how you can enable macro in PowerPoint 2016. At first, we have to find some options and turn on them. The option that I am saying is actually a Tab. The tab name is Developer.

So as is said in the above paragraph that we have to find an option and check the unchecked box. There are many other options in the Developer Tab like Macros, Visual basics, Restrict Editing, Add-Ins, and some other. Follow the following steps to make the developer tab appear.

From here, you can set and change many things. You can change the default font, change the saving place and more. Look at the following picture for more clarification.
