I just simply want to search for text in a presentation with Microsoft PowerPoint. How is this done? I've tried CTRL + F, and on Microsoft's page it tells me to choose Edit, but there is no Edit-button or whatever.

Here is an image of what I'm dealing with. enter image description here

Roughly translated menu:

  • Hjem - home
  • Sett inn - insert/ add
  • Utforming - design
  • Lysbildefremvisning - presentation
  • Se gjennom - review
  • Visning - view

Ctrl+F works on my machine. Have you mapped this shortcut to something else? – Nils Magne Lunde Mar 31 '11 at 18:45
I can't remember last time I used PowerPoint. However, it is mapped to Ctrl + b now. – whirlwin Mar 31 '11 at 19:01

Select "Hjem" (Home) and then look all the way to the right. There should be a tab group called "Editere" (Editing). The first button in this group should be "Finn" (Find).
