How to create a search icon in PowerPoint

Welcome back to power Point Training Online. Today we are going to show you how to create a search icon using nothing but PowerPoint. You can then use the very same search icon across multiple media types. There is the possibility of using it within PowerPoint presentations or Word templates. We here at PowerPoint Training Online have also used it for a search icon a website. The only limits are your imagination.

So without further ado, lets get into the nitty gritty.

Hopefully from the video above you can see how easy it is to create small graphics using nothing other then PowerPoint. As mentioned previously you could use this magnify glass as a search icon. Or you could use it as an object which portrays a hidden meaning. Here at PowerPoint Training Online we have used it as an icon in web design. We were able to make it clickable so that when a user clicked on it a search box would appear. Another great use as mentioned is to use it as an icon in your presentations. We like to use it to emphasise a point or show something has importance and needs further looking into. As you can see in the image below we have used a search icon to show you that taking notes as you go along will help you hone in on a problem.
