For Seniors: How to Display PowerPoint Slide Animation on a Delay

After setting up animation on a Microsoft PowerPoint slide, you can adjust a number of its settings. The most common change is to set the animation to occur automatically on a time delay rather than having it execute on mouse click.

You can control when the delayed content shows up by setting

  • A time delay: The additional content appears after a certain number of seconds. This technique is good for autonomous presentations (without human interaction).

  • A mouse click delay: Additional content appears only when you click the mouse or press a key on the keyboard. This technique is good for presentations with a live speaker because if someone asks a question or you get off-schedule, the animation won’t occur at the wrong time — you control its timing.

To set a time delay:

  1. Select the object.

  2. On the Animation tab, open the Start drop-down list and choose After Previous.

  3. (Optional) If you want a delay between the previous event (such as the slide appearing) and this animation, enter it in the Delay box.

  4. (Optional) If you want to adjust the speed at which the animation occurs, increment the value in the Duration field.

    Clicking the up arrow makes it slower; down makes it faster.
