PowerPoint Keyboard Shortcuts for Slide Shows

Whether you use a mouse or a remote control to navigate through a PowerPoint slide show presentation, it is also handy to use keyboard shortcuts. Here is a selection to try:

  • Run a slide show: [F5].powerpoint tips, shortcuts, slide show, keyboard shortcuts, tips for presentations
     
  • Run a slide show from the current slide: [Shift] + [F5].
     
  • Advance to the next slide (any of these): [Right], [Down], N (for Next), [Spacebar], [Page Down] (or click the left mouse).
     
  • Return to the previous slide (any of these): [Left], [Up], P (for Previous), [Backspace], [Page Up].
     
  • Go to specific slide number: type slide number and press [Enter]. One of my favorite tips to quickly skip past slides or to return to a previous slide. To display the slide number temporarily in handouts, choose View > Header and Footer, check Slide Number, Apply to All. Repeat steps to turn off after printing handouts.
     
  • Display a black screen or go back to slide show: B or [Period].
     
  • Display a white screen or go back to slide show: W or [Comma]. (Use carefully as the bright screen can be distracting to an audience).
     
  • End a slide show: [Esc].
     
  • Hide the mouse pointer: [Ctrl] + H. Hiding the mouse pointer should be part of your presentation preparation to avoid the accidental display of your mouse in the middle of your presentation.
     
  • Activate the mouse pointer/arrow: [Ctrl] + A.
     
  • Help during slide show (displays these and other keyboard shortcuts): [F1].

Note: You can also right-click anywhere on the slide show screen for a shortcut menu with many of these same actions.
