I think PowerPoint is a fun application. It can be a lot of fun to prepare eye-catching slides for your presentation. You can add bullets, numbers, and graphics and you can even use clever animation for your slides’ transition.
Having said that, why do it several times? Once you have created these nifty slides, it would be a shame to have to re-invent the wheel again the next time you do a presentation. A prime example would be when I am asked to make a presentation on MS Word, etc. Sure, I personalize my presentations for each client, but more often than not, I can use a slide or two that I have previously prepared to a different presentation and you know me – I love to save time and keystrokes!
Follow the steps below to learn how to use those slides more than once:
- Open the presentation to which you would like to add a slide.
- On the Home tab, in the Slides group, use the drop-down arrow under New Slide and select Reuse Slides.
- In the Reuse Slides pane, in the Insert slide from box, enter the location of the presentation or browse to find the one with slides you would like to reuse.
- To add more slides, simply follow the same steps above.
Waste not, want not, right?
