Working with Multiple Presentations
You will usually work with only one presentation at a time. But occasionally you may need to have two
or more presentations open at once — for example, to make it easier to copy text or slides from one
presentation to another.
To open another presentation, choose File
Open and select the one you want, the same as usual.
When more than one presentation is open, you can switch among them by selecting the one you want
to see from the taskbar in Windows. Alternatively, you can click the Switch Windows button on the View
tab and select any open presentation from there, as shown in the following screen shot.
Switch between open windows of all applications — not just PowerPoint — by pressing Alt+Esc
repeatedly to cycle through them or by holding down the Alt key and pressing Tab to browse through
thumbnails of open windows.
