To duplicate a slide — or slides — select the slide(s) you want to duplicate.
Then open the Home tab on the Ribbon, click the arrow at the bottom of the
Add Slide button in the Slides group, and click the Duplicate Selected Slides
button. A duplicate of the slide is inserted into your presentation.

screen) and then press Ctrl+D.

4. Press Enter.

If the text that you type is located anywhere in the presentation, the Find
command zips you to the slide that contains the text and highlights the text.
