Align Objects in PowerPoint
When you have a group of objects on a PowerPoint slide, you may want to align all of them so that they fall into the general categories of left, center, or right. Unfortunately, some users find this procedure difficult. It isn't difficult; it's just that it requires two steps.
You need to tell PowerPoint what kind of alignment you want to use. So click on Draw (at the bottom left of the PowerPoint window) and choose Align or Distribute, Relative To Slide. Now you're ready to click on the top object to select it.
Once the object is selected, click on Draw and choose Align or Distribute. When the submenu opens, choose Align Left, Center, or Right, or even Top, Middle, or Bottom.
