PowerPoint Tips: Jump to a Specific Slide

Lesson 5: Jump to a Specific Slide


Jump to a specific slide

When you’re in the middle of a presentation, you don’t have to scroll through one slide at a time to return to an earlier slide. Instead, you can use three different shortcuts to jump to a specific slide while you’re in Slide Show mode:

  • To go to a specific slide number, press a number and Enter. For example, if you wanted to see slide 4, just press 4, then Enter. This shortcut is best for shorter presentations when it’s easier to memorize the number of each slide.
  • To choose from a list of your slides, press CTRL+S.
  • To display thumbnails of every slide, press the G key, then click the one you want. Keep in mind that this shortcut only works in PowerPoint 2013 and up.
