Going from slide to slide
In a nutshell, PowerPoint offers four ways to move from slide to slide in a
presentation. Table 5-1 describes techniques for navigating a presentation
using the four different ways:
Click the Next or Previous button: These buttons are located in the
lower-left corner of the screen, as shown in Figure 5-2. If you don’t see
them, jiggle the mouse.
Click the Slides button and choose a slide: Clicking the Slides button
displays thumbnail versions of all the slides in the presentation. Click a
thumbnail to go to a specific slide. (To return to the slide you saw
previously, right-click and choose Last Viewed on the shortcut menu.)
Right-click on-screen: Right-click and choose a navigation option at the
top of the shortcut menu.
Press a keyboard shortcut: Press one of the numerous keyboard
shortcuts that PowerPoint offers for going from slide to slide (see Table 5-1).

*If animations are on a slide, commands for going to the next slide instead make animations play in
sequence. To bypass animations and go to the next slide, use a command for going forward across
several slides. (See “Jumping forward or backward to a specific slide.”)
