Add or remove sections in a PowerPoint presentation

Much like you would use folders to organize your files, you can use sections to organize your slides into meaningful groups. You can assign each colleague a section to make slide ownership clear during collaboration. And if you’re starting with a blank slate, you can use sections to outline the topics in your presentation.

Add a section

  • Right-click between the two slides where you want to add a section, and then click Add Section, or press Ctrl + <.
