You can add music to your PowerPoint presentations—and if done right, your audience will thank you. It can’t replace good content, of course, but strategically placed tunes can keep your audience’s attention and help drive your point home.

For background music throughout the entire slideshow
1. Open your slide presentation
2. Select Insert > Audio > Audio on My PC
