Rearranging Your Slides in Slide Sorter View
The following list tells you how to rearrange, add, or delete slides from Slide
✓ Move a slide: To move a slide, click and drag it to a new location. Point
to the slide and then hold down the mouse button. Drag the slide to its
new location and release the button. PowerPoint adjusts the display to
show the new arrangement of slides.
✓ Delete a slide: To delete a slide, click the slide to select it and then
press Delete or Backspace. This works only in Slide Sorter View.
✓ Add a new slide: To add a new slide, click the slide that you want the
new slide to follow and then click the New Slide button. The Slide Layout
task pane appears so that you can select the layout for the new slide. To
edit the contents of the slide, return to Normal View via the view buttons
(shown in Figure 2-5) or the View tab on the Ribbon or by double-clicking
the new slide.
If your presentation contains more slides than can fit onscreen at one time,
you can use the scroll bars to scroll through the display. Or you can use
the zoom slider at the bottom-right corner of the screen to make the slides
Slide Sorter View might seem kind of dull and boring, but it’s also the place
where you can add jazzy transitions, build effects, or add cool animation
effects to your slides. For example, you can make your bullets fall from the
top of the screen like bombs and switch from slide to slide by using strips,
wipes, or blinds. Chapter 9 describes all this cool stuff.
