A Perfect Circle in PowerPoint

Realize a perfect circle shape in PowerPoint

Step 1 Launch PowerPoint. Generally, PowerPoint will start with a new slide in a presentation. You are able to change the slide layout to blank by clicking "Home" tab > "Layout" > "Blank".

PowerPoint 2016/2013: "Insert " > "Shapes " > Choose the oval shape.

PowerPoint 2010: "Insert" > "Illustrations" group > "Shapes" > Choose the oval shape.

PowerPoint 2007: "Home" tab > "Drawing" group > "Shapes" > Choose the oval shape.

Choose Oval Shape

Step 3 Click anywhere on the slide to add the oval shape in a predefined size, typically 1 inch x 1 inch. Since the height and the width are the same, you'll find out that this oval is already a circle! For resizing, hold down the Shift key while dragging any of the four corner handles to retain the circle proportion (preventing the circle from becoming an oval).
