PowerPoint 2003: Working with Action Buttons

An action button works just like a hyperlink. The cool thing about Action Buttons is they are typically in recognizable shapes like arrows.

In this way, you can create one arrow that moves a user to the previous slide and another arrow that moves a user to the next slide.
