Navigating PowerPoint Hyperlinks Navigation Buttons Page Control Linear PowerPoint MENU EXIT Slide Sorter View
Hyperlinks allow you to navigate around your PowerPoint easily by picking which slide you want to go to.
You have to apply the hyperlink to something on your menu to make it work.
To attach a Hyperlink to something on your page, select the object/text, and right click on it.
Now choose “Hyperlink” from the menu.
Now choose what slide you want to go to from the selection box.
From the “Insert Hyperlink” dialogue box that appears, choose “Place in this Document” on the left.
Navigation Buttons are very like Hyperlinks, but they are their own object with the link automatically attached.
To attach a button select the “Slide Show” menu and choose “Action Buttons”.
