Rearrange Your PowerPoint 2007 Slides

By Doug Lowe

In PowerPoint 2007 to see an overall view of your presentation, you need to work in Slide Sorter View. From there you can rearrange the slides in your PowerPoint presentation.

You can switch to Slide Sorter View in two easy ways:

  • Click the Slide Sorter button at the right side of the status bar.

  • Select the View tab on the Ribbon and then click the Slide Sorter button in the Presentation Views group.

The PowerPoint Slide Sorter View is shown here. The following list tells you how to rearrange, add, or delete slides from Slide Sorter View:

  • Move a slide: Point to the slide and then hold down the left mouse button. Drag the slide to its new location and release the button.

  • Delete a slide: To delete a slide, click the slide to select it and then press Delete or Backspace.

  • Add a new slide: Click the slide that you want the new slide to follow and then click the New Slide button. The Slide Layout task pane appears so that you can select the layout for the new slide.

If your presentation contains more slides than can fit on-screen at one time, use the scroll bars to scroll through the display. Or you can use the zoom slider at the bottom right corner of the screen to make the slides smaller.
