Before we move on to the ‘how’, let’s explore why Prezi is useful in the first place. We have previously discussed this in our post about PowerPoint vs Prezi, however, you can see the brief video given below to get an overview of what makes Prezi awesome to use.
Creating Zooming Presentations Using Prezi for Windows
If you wish to use Prezi but don’t know where to start, then you should begin by downloading the desktop Prezi app to get started with making amazing presentations or login to a Prezi account from your browser. In this post, we will explore the features of Prezi for Windows and show you how to create zooming presentations.
Login With a Prezi Account
To get started, download and install the Prezi app for Windows and login with your Prezi account. You can use a free Prezi account which offers 100MB of free storage and basic options. The free account is limited to a 30-day trial, which you can extend for another 3 months by inviting 3 people to sign up for Prezi.

To re-order your slides, simply drag and drop them so that they appear in your desired zooming sequence.
