Over three decades of Microsoft PowerPoint history

Microsoft PowerPoint was first released in 1980, initially designed for the Macintosh computer and called Presenter, but in 1987 changed to PowerPoint, as we all know it now.

In 1990 it was officially launched at the same time the Microsoft Windows operating system Windows 3.0 was released.

Over the years and consequent releases, PowerPoint introduced several changes that made it an outstanding product, changing the way we experience presentations. As such, with the incorporation of Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) presentations no longer had to be linear, allowing macros, effects and predefined transitions to result in a non-linear slideshow, more similar to a movie, all without the need for programming skills.

Microsoft PowerPoint has also allowed users to create animations that are more advanced and as such, it has become the standard for presentations, used by teachers, coaches and professionals worldwide, in many fields such as education, entertainment, business meetings, product releases, project presentations, among others.
