Below is a list of instructions on how to use the supplied background templates for your music lists.

Open PowerPoint. Close down any startup and popup windows.

STEP 1. Menu Bar: Choose Open

STEP 2. Browse to the backgrounds directories and Highlight a file. A low resolution image will be displayed in preview area. If this is the background you wish to use click on the Open command.

STEP 3.  From the file menu bar choose Save As. Browse to your _Current Service directory. In the File Name: area type in the name of the file (Music_02-Jan-28). Now click on the Save Button.

You now have a background, welcome page, and default font colors setup as shown below. 

For information on how to insert songs into this PowerPoint presentation see Song List Setup.

We suggest you open your music list for your service and put it to screen on one of the blank slides. Do not deactivate it but leave it active and then open your announcements or sermon notes and activate them overtop of the active music list. When you close your sermon notes or announcements the music list will be active. This will give you a theme for your service and people will not see a blank projected screen. You will also want to make sure your desktop background is black just in case you close all your PowerPoint presentations which would put the computer desktop through the projector. See Multiple Active Shows for instructions on this subject.
