The Developer tab of the Ribbon is typically not visible — and you have to enable it within the PowerPoint Options dialog box. This tab provides options that most PowerPoint users don’t use. However, if you are a programmer or developer — or even someone who wants to explore options that let you take PowerPoint further — then you will love the advanced options within the Developer tab that let you work with VBA content and macros. Additionally you can use this tab to access options that allow you to insert ActiveX controls on your slides. Follow these steps to enable the Developer tab of the Ribbon.
