Microsoft® PowerPoint® add-ins are similar to Microsoft® Excel add-ins. You build a PowerPoint add-in to provide additional functionality to users while they are developing or running a PowerPoint slide presentation. In most cases, the user works with your add-in by clicking a toolbar button or menu item that you have included with the add-in.
