Everyone wants their PowerPoint presentation to be unique. Users would use photos, add colored and various font styles of text to make their presentation appealing to their audience. What if the user wants each of their PowerPoint to have background music added to each slide? In this tutorial, we will discuss how to add background music to each slide.

First, click on the first slide.
Click on the Insert tab.
