PowerPoint 2007: Adding a Hyperlink to a Slide

PowerPoint 2007: Adding a Hyperlink to a Slide

I don’t think it’s a stretch to assume that you know what a hyperlink is. If you’re not sure…think Internet, web pages and blue text with a blue underline. See? You use hyperlinks all the time – you just may not have known the term.

In PowerPoint 2007, you can create internal hyperlinks that allow you to jump from one slide to another and external hyperlinks that jump to other presentations, documents, or a web site. You can even create a hyperlink that addresses an e-mail.

What’s more, you can create hyperlinks on text and graphics. Which means, you can create a hyperlink, for example, from a company logo that displays the company web page when clicked.

And, you don’t even have to be a web designer to do it!
