Did you notice gridlines inside the presentation slide?
On some occasions, these gridlines can appear without the user change PowerPoint’s setting. Don’t worry, gridlines you just see doesn’t affect the slide when it is being presented.
Gridlines supposed to help users create a presentation slide with a higher precision level. However, if you are not a fan of it, you can remove gridlines easily.

Time Needed : 1 minutes
In the guide below, you will learn how to remove gridlines in the PowerPoint when editing the slide.
- Launch PowerPoint and go to the View menu.

This setting will remain permanently unless you decide to use the gridlines again.
Although you don’t need this feature right now, gridlines are very useful for positioning an image or object. A geometrical shape also would be easier to make if you let the gridlines option enabled. After all, gridlines are not showing when you run the presentation.
