Slide Hunting in PowerPoint

Thursday, June 4th, 2009 by | Filed Under: MS PowerPoint

Here’s the situation: You’re in the middle of your PowerPoint presentation and suddenly, there’s a question regarding a different slide.

Of course, it’s not a question about the previous or the next slide. As luck would have it, you’ve got to go “hunting” for the right slide. So, now what?

Fortunately, while there are a lot of ways you could get to your new destination, there’s a couple that can provide minimal disruption to your presentation. (Can’t you just picture a presentation where someone goes back into the program and you see the slide sorter, the toolbars, the menus and all? Don’t let that happen to you!)

Let’s take a look at one of those “minimally disruptive” methods.

Next time you need to jump out of presentation sequence, turn on the presentation menu. (The “a” key will do this for you, as well as, moving your mouse pointer across the screen).

In the menu, you’re looking for the Go submenu, By Title choice.


This will bring up a list of all slide titles in the presentation. (Your list would actually contain the titles you gave each slide.)

As usualy… I’ve got to insert a side note for my PowerPoint 2007 users.

Your presentation menu will have a slightly different choice, specifially it will have the choice Go to Slide in the menu.


You’ll immediately see the list of slide titles to choose from.

No matter what version of PowerPoint you’re using it’s now time to pick the title of the one you need and… zip! You’re instantly in the location of your choice, minus the usual disruptive search for the “right” slide!
