OK, I tried this and nothing happened so I got a little frustrated and began clicking wildly all over the about screen then all of a sudden the credits popped up with very colorful and animated names. It was kind of cool, but how do I see the Mac arena??

Also, in PP 2000, clicking on the logo in the upper-left corner of the about-help screen will begin to display credits.

There are two eggs that can be found in the PPT About box. First is the one stated, hold Ctrl+Alt+Shift and click on the line about the warnings. It will make the bar on the left scroll about. Next is holding Ctrl+Alt+shift and clicking on the bar on the left, this will start a cool animation that shows the producers names.

I have Office 97 SR-1 and all you have to do is left-click on the graphic, no key combos required. Also, no Macarena.
