Click here for detailed instructions on this procedure using PowerPoint 2013 and 2016.

For version 2013, first open the PowerPoint presentation you wish to print.

Add any additional speaker notes by scrolling through the slides and typing into the bottom text box.

Click the "View" tab at the top of the screen. Click the "Notes Page" button on the left of the ribbon/toolbar below the tab. The view changes to a full-page view where you can see both the slide and the speaker notes associated with it.

Click the "File" tab and select "Print" to open the "Print" dialog.

Pull down the menu under the "Slides" header, which defaults to "Full Page Slides." Click the "Notes Pages" button. An image of one of the speaker notes pages fills the right third portion of the screen.

Click the "Print" button to print one copy of the speaker notes or nudge the "Copies" box up to the number of sets to print.

  10. @ Pguy - If you send the PowerPoint file (a .ppt or .pptx) the speaker notes should also be there.
