How to Link to Another Slide in the Same PowerPoint Presentation?


If you know you’ll be referring to the content of a previously-viewed slide at some point during your presentation, it might be helpful to insert a link pointing back to that slide for quick access.

For instance, in your office, you are giving a presentation and reach slide 21, but you need to find a way to get to slide 5. Presenters must usually go through every slide until they reach slide five. This is a waste of time and time-consuming, but there is an easier way to accomplish this; a way that requires you only to click a button to complete it.

This risewindows article will explain to you a way how to link to another slide in the same PowerPoint Presentation.

How to Link to Another Slide in the Same Presentation?

To link to another slide in the same PowerPoint Presentation, follow these steps:-

Step 1. First, open your Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation. And navigate to the slide where you want to add the hyperlink.

Suppose we want to add a link on the fifth slide to the first slide. You can insert a link on the text, object, shape, or image.

To illustrate this post, we have added the text “Go to the first slide,” and we will link it to the first slide.

Step 2. Then, select the text or shape you want to add a hyperlink to.

Step 3. Click on the Insert tab in the menu bar.

Step 4. After that, click on the Link button under the Links group.

Step 5. Once you’re done, the “Insert Hyperlink” dialog will appear. Select the Place in This Document option under the “Link to” section.

Step 6. Next, choose the destination slide under the “Select a place in this document” list.

Then, the first four options at the top of the list let you select the presentation’s first, last, following, or previous slide.

If you want to link to a specific slide, expand the “Slide Titles” category to list all the slides in your presentation. If a slide has a title, the list shows the title. However, if a slide doesn’t have a title, the list shows it as “Slide 2.”

A preview of the selected slide will appear in the window to the right once you click on the decline.

Step 7. Finally, click OK.

Press Ctrl+click. Even though when you’re presenting slides, click the linked text, object, or shape to test the link in the regular slide editing view.

For some reason, you want to remove the hyperlink, right-click the linked object or text and then select the Remove Link option.

That’s it for the article.

I hope this post will be informative to you.

Good luck & keep growing, guys.
