The final slide in our third
PowerPoint Presentation is a Bulleted list with some animation.
You have already added a bulleted list in a previous presentation.

dialogue box, select Bulleted List from the dialogue box (powerpoint

When you’re happy with your slide, press F5 on your keyboard and run
your powerpoint presentation.
