Create a Hyperlink within
Open a presentation in PowerPoint.
In Normal view, go to the slide that contains the element
you want to use as your source link in the hyperlink.
Choose the element (we chose a small circular shape)
and then in the Ribbon, click the Animations tab.
In the Links group, click Hyperlink, as shown in
In the Insert Hyperlink dialog box, click the Place In
This Document option under Link To, as shown in
Figure 13-1: Assign a hyperlink to text or objects
Select your desired destination link under Select A Place
In This Document. Select from the slides or a custom
show within your presentation. If you select a custom
show, you can select the Show And Return option, which
will take the display back to the source link after the show
has played. For more on custom shows, see Chapter 16.
To test your hyperlink, run your presentation by clicking
the Slide Show tab in the Ribbon and then clicking
From Current Slide. You can also click the Slide Show
button in the bottom right of the window. Note that
when you hover your cursor over the hyperlink, the
arrow becomes a pointing hand, indicating a link.

Hyperlinks are links from one slide to another slide, a custom show
(a subpresentation within your main presentation), a Web site, an
e-mail address, or a file. The hyperlink can be text, a picture, an
AutoShape, a chart, WordArt, or an action button. (We describe
action buttons later in this chapter.)
