Microsoft Powerpoint tip: jump to a slide by number
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.
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.
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.
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.
