PowerPoint 2007: Duplicating & Deleting Slides

PowerPoint 2007: Duplicating & Deleting Slides

Earlier in this course, we talked about deleting slides in Outline View, but here, in addition to talking about deleting slides in both Normal View and Slide Sorter View, we’re also going to look duplicating slides.

Duplicating Slides

I know you know how to copy & paste text and you probably even know how to copy and paste entire slides. But, what we’re talking about is a QUICK way to duplicate an entire slide.

Duplicating Slides Using the Shortcut Menu

     
  1. Right-click the slide (or object) you want to duplicate in Normal View
     
  2.  
  3. Choose Duplicate Slide from the Shortcut Menu
     

Duplicating Slides Using the Keyboard

     
  1. Select the slide (or object) you want to duplicate
      (You can be in Normal View or Slide Sorter View)
     
  2.  
  3. Press [CTRL]+D
     

REMEMBER – this technique works for more than just slides AND it works on all kinds of graphics in every Office program.

Deleting Slides

Just as with the previous topic – duplicating slides – there are several ways to delete slides. And, you can pick whichever is easiest for you. There is not “best” way to accomplish this task.

  1. Select the slide (or object) you want to delete in Normal View
     
  2.  
  3.  Choose the Delete Slide command in the Slides group on the Home tab
