PowerPoint offers the ability to add header and footers to the slides. While having footers in presentations would be logical, header may not be quite evident at first. Typically, the slide title would be the header in the main slide, however when it comes to printing out handouts a separate header would be quite useful.

Here are the steps to add header and footer information to slides

Step (1): In the Insert ribbon, click on Header & Footer menu item.
