Using Header and Footers in PowerPoint is very important. Headers and footers appear at the top and bottom of your PowerPoint slides. They are used to show additional information. After editing a header, you can add more information, but it should not be too much as it will overwhelm your audience. The section Header is used to introduce new sections in the presentation. It has two placeholders. They are the text placeholder and a title placeholder. You can place your name, title, or page number on your header in your slides.
