Sections are useful for organizing slides in a PowerPoint presentation, allowing you to find a specific slide in a large presentation more quickly. But you can also use sections to create special summary slides, allowing you to jump to a section within a presentation. This video goes through the setup of sections, and then explores how summary slides work.
- [Instructor] Welcome to PowerPoint Tips Weekly.…I'm Nick Brazzi.…This week, we'll be talking about…getting your slides organized into sections.…So I have a presentation here with 30 slides…and that's fairly long…but you certainly might build presentations…that are even longer than this…and if you need to go back…and make a quick change to one specific slide,…you're going to be scrolling through this list…and hunting for what you're looking for…but not if you keep things a little more organized.…So I'm going to create some sections in this presentation.…So to do that, I'll start by selecting one specific slide.…
This will be the first slide of my second section.…I'm going to right click on that and I'll choose Add Section.…So you can see now it made a section header…at the very beginning of my presentation…and another section header above the slide…that I had selected.…So next, I want to rename the section headers.…So if I right click on the section header itself,…I can choose Rename Section,…give this a name, hit Rename…
