PowerPoint Key Combinations

Monday, November 22nd, 2004 by | Filed Under: MS PowerPoint

PowerPoint Key Combinations

For all my keyboard enthusiasts I thought I’d include a short list of key combinations that are for MS PowerPoint.

Editing Shortcuts (In addition to the regular shortcuts for copy, paste, bold, Italics, etc…):

  • Ctrl + Shift + D will make a duplicate of the current slide.
  • Ctrl + M will insert a new slide, allowing you to select the slide layout.
  • Ctrl + K will open the window to insert a hyperlink.
  • Page Up will move you back one slide.
  • Page Down will move you forward one slide.

Shortcuts While Running Your Slideshow:

  • Enter, Shift or N will advance your slideshow one slide.
  • Backspace or P will go back one slide in your slideshow.
  • Esc will end your slideshow.
  • B will display a black screen. (B again will return from the black screen.)
  • W will display a white screen. (W again will return from the white screen.)
  • A number then Enter will go to that slide number.

Well that’s quite a few—enough to learn for now.

(But—if you’re just dying to know more this very minute simply run a slideshow and press the F1 key. An entire list of keyboard shortcuts will pop up for your use.)
