Summary:

If you use PowerPoint, and want to jump to slide number 51 quickly (instead of pressing the Right Arrow 51 times), put in slide number, then Enter.

Details:

I wanted to give you a quick tip from my newsletter last summer, which you could have gotten 6 months ago if you got my newsletters – so sign up in the upper right hand corner of this page!

In the video below, I show where I explained it at a keynote speech, and they applauded for it, admittedly after I told them to.


Problem:

When you get out of a PowerPoint presentation to show another file, like a video, internet site, et cetera, it isn’t always trivial to jump back to the slide number where you left off.

Solution:

In a PowerPoint Slide Show, if you want to jump to slide number 51, type in 51, then Enter, and PowerPoint will jump to slide number 51, as I show in the video at the top.

Cool, huh?   Be careful out there.

I always spent my half an hour to read this web site’s posts all the time along with a mug of coffee.

I do not know if it’s just me or if everyone else encountering problems with your site.
It seems like some of the written text within your content are
running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is
happening to them as well? This might be a issue with my
internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

Thank you

what the hell? A video clip with no sound, and a “solution” that just repeats the problem? Is this a joke site?

The sound works just fine on my machine, as it always has, and the problem and solution are both in the video.

magnificent post, very informative. I’m wondering why the other specialists of this sector
don’t understand this. You must continue your writing. I am sure,
you’ve a huge readers’ base already!
