- [Narrator] If you anticipate needing to jump to various sections of a presentation while you're presenting, or you want to create one that's more interactive, you might consider using the Summary Zoom. It creates a summary slide with thumbnail representations of the different sections that already exist in your presentation, allowing you to click those to jump directly to that section. Let's see how that's done. First of all, you'll need to have a presentation that already has sections. You can see I have a Welcome section, there's E-Commerce, there's a Research and Development section, Sales and Marketing, as well.
And that'll help automate the process of creating the Zoom Summary. Let's check it out from the Insert tab. From here, you'll see a Zoom drop-down button, and you could do this yourself, creating a Section Zoom, to create a link to a specific section. You could do it right on the slide, or you could do a link to another slide, to be used as a Zoom effect to take you there, or you can let PowerPoint do a lot of the work for you, with a Summary Zoom. Let's give it a click.
First thing that happens is, you'll see thumbnails of all the slides in your presentation, some of which are already selected or checked off. These happen to be the very first slides of a section. For example, this first one is the first slide in our Welcome section. The next one that's checked off, is the first slide in our E-Commerce section. Now, we could add additional slides if we wanted to be able to jump to them, but automatically PowerPoint recognizes the first slide in a section and selects those for us.
All we have to do, is click Insert. It adds a brand new section and slide to what we call the Summary Section. You can see down below thumbnails representing those different sections, and we can click where it says Click to add title, to give this a title. How about just something like, "Welcome," for the sake of time. Click on the background to deselect. We're ready to test this out. I'm gonna go down to the very bottom, where we see our different View buttons, and click Slideshow.
And now, it's just a matter of using your arrow keys or your mouse to click the section you wanna go to. You'll see the Zoom effect, zooming into that slide, and you'll be able to move through the various slides in that section, returning to this Zoom when you're done. Say you wanna go to Sales and Marketing, just move your mouse around until you can see it, and click Sales and Marketing Updates, and we're at the first slide in that section. You can use whatever you like to move from slide to slide, like the Enter key for example. We move through those slides.
Eventually, we get to the last slide, and we return back to our Zoom. Want to go to a different section now? Go ahead and click it. Zooms into that one slide. You can now click again or press Enter to move to the next slide. As you go to move to the next slide, it takes us back to that Zoom. So we can always quickly jump to the specific section in our presentation we need to using this Summary Zoom. Press Escape when you're done.
