  4. A list of all slides in your presentation will appear. Click on the slide you want to link to.
  5. Click “OK” to create the hyperlink.

Method 2: Using Action Buttons

  1. Go to the slide where you want to add the action button.
  2. Navigate to the “Insert” tab in the Ribbon.
  3. In the Illustrations group, click on “Shapes” and choose an action button shape (e.g., rectangle or oval).
  4. Draw the action button on your slide.
  5. In the Action Settings dialog box, choose the “Hyperlink to:” option and select “Slide…”
  6. A list of all slides in your presentation will appear. Click on the slide you want to link to and click “OK.”
  7. During the presentation, clicking on the action button will take you directly to the linked slide.

Method 3: Using Custom Slide Shows

  1. Click on the “Slide Show” tab in the Ribbon.
  2. In the Set Up group, click on “Custom Slide Show” and select “Custom Shows.”
  3. In the Custom Shows dialog box, click on “New.”
  4. Name your custom slide show and select the slides you want to include.
  5. Click “Add” to add selected slides to your custom show.
  6. Click “OK” to close the Custom Shows dialog box.
  7. During the presentation, go to the Slide Show tab, click on “Custom Slide Show,” and select your created custom show.
  8. This will jump to the specified slides in the custom show.

Choose the method that best fits your needs and preferences. Hyperlinks and action buttons provide on-the-fly interaction during a presentation, while custom slide shows allow you to organize and jump to specific groups of slides.
