I am trying to record PowerPoint 365 for YouTube in 1080p or as high of resolution as I can. 

I read through the resource page

The challenge is in PowerPoint 365 under Slide Show I am not able to set the resolution as the guide directs. 

Also, I am trying to record the PowerPoint on a 13" Dell XPS. 

I would love help on how to figure out how to record 1080p PowerPoint presentations so I can add them into my YouTube video and have the same high resolution I have with my videos. Currently I record at 1080p. 

If you have figured this out can you please provide me detailed instructions. 

Thank you,

You need to make sure Powerpoint is set 16:9 ratio.
You set it under the "Design" tab not slide show.
Click Image to enlarge:

Then set to record at a 16:9 ratio such as 1280 x 720 or 1920 x 1080.Either is HD

or use this calculator to determine what what would be 16:9 based on the width of your video
