Microsoft PowerPoint documents
Left click once inside the document you are viewing and right-click and choose ‘Print’.

Print PowerPoint slides in Hand-outs mode or Black and White mode.

Hand-out mode will print several slides in one page and Black and White mode will print the presentation in pure black and white. However, choosing both Hand-out and Black and White mode will save printer ink and your printing quota.

See the screenshot below to print a PowerPoint presentation in Hand-out mode or Black and White mode. You will see the following dialog box when you click print; the options to print in Hand-out mode or Black and White mode are in red.
