How to enable macros in my presentation?

By default, Microsoft Office PowerPoint sets the Macro Security level to High. This prevents macros from running unless they are signed. Additionally, Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003 introduced a Very High level for Macro Security. This setting prevents even signed macros from running unless they are located in a location that has been setup as trusted.

To run unsigned macros in a presentation, you need to set the Macro Security settings to atleast Medium. Here are the steps:
