In the following activities, you will modify slides by finding and replacing text and by using the Undo and Redo commands.
Throughout this presentation, the word child is used to describe the new product line. The word teen more accurately describes the product. You could scroll through the presentation and change each occurrence of child to teen. PowerPoint provides an easier method for you to change all of the occurrences of a word to another word by using the Replace command.

Click OK to close the box indicating the number of replacements. Click Close to close the Replace dialog box.
Save the presentation.
More Knowledge: Replacing Text
To replace some, but not all, occurrences of a word, use the Find Next button in the Replace dialog box to instruct PowerPoint to stop at each occurrence of the Find what text. Then click Replace if you want to replace the selected occurrence, or click Find Next to skip to the next occurrence without replacing.
A useful feature in PowerPoint is the ability to undo a change that you have made. PowerPoint remembers each change so that you can undo these commands if you have changed your mind or performed an action by mistake. You can change your mind again and reverse an undo by using the Redo command.
