Go to a slide when delivering your presentation

As you deliver your presentation, here is how to move from one slide to the next, move to a previous slide, or move to a specific slide anywhere in the presentation. For information about moving slides or changing the order of slides in your presentation, see the article Change the order of your slides.

Tip:  If you prefer to use keyboard shortcuts, rather than your mouse, when delivering your presentation, see the article Keyboard shortcuts for use while delivering a presentation in PowerPoint 2010.
