    • 1). Open Microsoft PowerPoint. Click the "Insert" tab. Click the "Shapes" button below the tab.

    • 2). Choose a shape from the drop-down menu, such a star, arrow or sunburst. Note the cursor changes to a plus sign.

    • 3). Click the PowerPoint slide, press and hold down the left mouse button, and drag to form the shape. The shape appears on the PowerPoint slide, but fills in with PowerPoint's default colors and is not 3D.

    • 4). Click the new orange "Drawing Tools" tab at the top of the screen. Click the "Shape Fill" button on the ribbon. Choose a color for the middle of the shape and click "OK." Click the "Shape Outline" button. Choose a color for the border of the shape -- choosing the same color as the fill will make the shape look solid -- and click "OK." This step is optional.

    • 5). Click the "Text Effects" button on the ribbon. Click the "Shadow" button. Scroll through the options on the "Shadow" fly-out menu and hover the cursor over each to see the 3D appearance each gives to the shape. Click a shadow to commit the change or click off onto the slide to close the drop-down menu.

    • 6). Click the "Text Effects" button again. Click the "3-D Rotation" option and scroll through the fly-out options. Hover over them to see how they change the shape and click one to commit the change.
