Google Quick Tip #2

Would you like a YouTube for PowerPoint presentations? It doesn't exist yet, but the next best thing is creating a Google search to look specifically for PowerPoint presentations.


Use the phrase filetype:ppt to find a PowerPoint presentation. We could create a search phrase in Google to find PowerPoint presentations that deal with innovations in medical education, specifically developed by an educational or government organization.

filetype:ppt innovations "medical education" (site:edu OR site:gov)

  • filetype:doc finds Word documents
  • filetype:xls finds Excel files
  • filetype:pdf finds PDF files.

EXTRA TIP: Putting "quotation marks" around a phrase looks for that exact phrase.
