When you create a PowerPoint presentation, it is useful to add notes to a slide in case there is something you want to mention while showing a slide during a presentation. If you want to remove a note from a slide or all notes from a presentation, it is easy to do so. You may want to remove notes if you plan to distribute a PowerPoint presentation to your colleagues.
