  1. On the Transitions tab, under Transition to This Slide, click the transition that you want — Fade, for example.

    Transitions tab, Transition to This Slide group

  2. To vary the transition, such as the direction it moves on the screen, click Effect Options, and then select the variation you want. Or, you can change other options such as duration, sound, or advancing the slide.
