In PowerPoint, hiding slides can be useful for various reasons, but you might need to unhide or call them back at a later time. Here’s how you can unhide or call back hidden slides:

Method 1: Using the Slide Sorter View

  1. Open your PowerPoint presentation.
  2. Click on the “View” tab in the Ribbon.
  3. Select “Slide Sorter” in the Presentation Views group.
  4. In the Slide Sorter view, you’ll see all your slides. Look for the hidden slides; they might have a diagonal line across the slide number.
  5. Right-click on the hidden slide that you want to unhide.
  6. Choose “Hide Slide” from the context menu to uncheck it. This action will unhide the slide.
  7. Repeat the process for any other hidden slides you want to unhide.
  8. Once you’ve finished, you can go back to the normal view by clicking on the “Normal” button in the Presentation Views group.

Method 2: Using the Selection Pane

  1. Open your PowerPoint presentation.
  2. Click on the “Home” tab in the Ribbon.
  3. In the Editing group, click on “Select,” and then choose “Selection Pane.”
  4. The Selection Pane will appear on the right side of the screen. It lists all the objects on your slides, including hidden slides.
  5. Find the hidden slide in the Selection Pane.
  6. Click on the eye icon next to the hidden slide’s name to unhide it.
  7. Close the Selection Pane when you’re done.

Method 3: Using the Slide Show Setup

  1. Open your PowerPoint presentation.
  2. Click on the “Slide Show” tab in the Ribbon.
  3. Click on the “Set Up Slide Show” button in the Set Up group.
  4. In the Set Up Show dialog box, look for the “Show slides” section.
  5. If the “Show slides” option is set to “Custom,” check the list of slides. Unhide the slides by selecting them in the list.
  6. If the “Show slides” option is set to “All,” make sure there are no hidden slides in your presentation.
  7. Click “OK” to apply the changes.

Choose the method that suits your preferences and workflow.
