Moving Through Your Presentation

There is a Slides Tab to move through your presentation on the left hand side of PowerPoint.  Click on the slide you wish to view or edit to move directly to that slide.  Use the scrollbar to the right of the slides to access slides later in your presentation.

You can also use the arrow keys to move throughout the presentation.  Click on a slide in the Slides Tab, and then use the arrows to change the slide you are viewing.

You can also click on the Outline Tab to the right of the Slides Tab. Click on the title of a slide to jump to that slide.  The advantage of the Outline Tab, is that you are able to see the title and text of the slide as you move between them.
