From Beginning to End and Back Again

Working on a PowerPoint presentation? Need to move quickly from one end to the other?

No problem.

Provided you do not have the cursor actively in a text box, the Home key will move you to the first slide of the presentation.

As you can now guess, the End key will zip you off to the last slide of the presentation.

If you use the Home or End keys while in a text box, you’ll simply move to the beginning or end of the current line of text. Combine them with the Ctrl key and you’ll simply move to the beginning or the end of the text box.

Now, what do you do if you are in one of the text boxes and want to make one of these quick moves?

Good question.

Here’s a quick answer: Hit the Esc key. It will remove the focus from the text box to the slide itself. You can then use either the Home or End keys to finish.

There you have it. A quick way to go from the beginning to the end and back again!
