Click the PowerPoint Options button below the Recent Documents list.

2. Click the PowerPoint Options button below the Recent Documents list.

Click Advanced. Scroll down to the section titled "When printing this document."

3. Click Advanced. Scroll down to the section titled When printing this document. Use these settings:
