Printing Multiple PowerPoint Slides to a Single Page
 
Faculty will sometimes post PowerPoint slides converted to Web pages that students then want to print multiple slides to a page. You must print this way from within the PowerPoint program; Web browsers do not allow this option. Depending on how the files were saved to the Web, you will follow one of the following sets of directions.
  1. Open Internet Explorer. Go to the professor’s Web site and PowerPoint slides. Do this by typing the URL into the Address box near the top, or by selecting from the Academics menu of the university's Web site and browsing down to the prof’s site.
  2. Click on the Open a new copy of [filename.ppt] for editing button (a red and white button directly underneath the Address box on the left side). [no button? try the other directions below]
  3. In the resulting dialog box, select the H:/ drive and then the folder with your login name. (You may want to further organize it into a subdirectory). Then click OK.
  4. Open Microsoft PowerPoint, and then open the file you just saved.
  5. Within PowerPoint, select File-->Print. Near the bottom of the Print dialog box, find the Print What: drop down menu and select Handouts. Immediately to the right, choose the number of slides per page (from 2 to 9), as well as their horizontal or vertical order on the page. Then click OK.

If there is no red and white PowerPoint button available to download the file, use the following directions:

  1. Using Internet Explorer, open up the Web-based PowerPoint presentation to the first slide.
  2. Click the Index navigation button (it has an “i” on it)
  3. On the Index page, click Download presentation source. At the warning box, where it says “What do you want to do with this file?” choose Save it to disk and click OK.
  4. Choose and save to an appropriate location for the file (we suggest your H: drive)
  5. Open Microsoft PowerPoint, and then open the file you just saved.
  6. Within PowerPoint, select File-->Print. Near the bottom of the Print dialog box, find the Print What: drop down menu and select Handouts. Immediately to the right, choose the number of slides per page (from 2 to 9), as well as their horizontal or vertical order on the page. Then click OK.
