On Microsoft PowerPoint, is it possible to change slides automatically, not to the next slide but to one completely new for example slide 2 to slide 7 without clicking anything at all?

Please respond

  • Possible duplicate of superuser.com/q/504061/74620 You might also be interested in the answer pcreview.co.uk/forums/… where it's stated that 'You need to make each of the reference slides a custom show. When you link choose "Custom show" and tick show and return. When the user clicks for the next slide in the custom show they will return to the slide with the hyperlink.' – James Jun 25 '13 at 16:42

Not sure what version of PowerPoint you are using, but depending on what your goals are for the presentation I would say you could change the animation times so that they zoom through the slides you want to skip. Also you could use a macro. I found this link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/aa172148%28v=office.11%29.aspx that includes macros to force go to slide #n.


With SlideShowWindows(1).View
    .GotoSlide 3, msoFalse
End With
  • That would require clicking something to get the macro to run. Joseph mentioned that he wants the slide change to happen w/o clicking. – Steve Rindsberg Jun 29 '13 at 15:30
