Another feature unique to PowerPoint is the eye dropper. 

If you want to use a particular color, you can just click the eye dropper on the color. When you open the Power Point color menu again, choose More Colors, and you can see the RGB colors. To use the eye dropper outside the PowerPoint frame, hold down the left mouse button and pick from any website or picture you have visible on your desktop.

Thanks to Sam Radakovitz for this tip.
