In this article, you will learn about Introducing PowerPoint 2016 File Tab Backstage View. The file menu is all about presentation sharing, printing, saving and adding a new page. You can click on the “file” options to go to the file menu; the file option place is beside the home tab. There are at least eleven panels, and when you click on any of the panels, you will see lots of options from the individual ones. You can just exit the File menu tab by pressing ESC or clicking on the back arrow on the top. There is no other backstage view without the file menu tab. Backstage pages are the following.
