What are Slide Transitions?
Rather than animating elements within an individual slide, a
transition in a PowerPoint presentation is simply animation between
slides. Transitions add movement (and sometimes sound) between the end
of one slide and the start of the next slide.

Although transitions can be added from a number of different
PowerPoint views, the easiest way to apply useful movement is from the
Slide Sorter View.
- Choose View > Slide Sorter or choose the Slide Sorter
icon from the view buttons near the PowerPoint status bar.
Next, pick Slide Show > Slide Transition
which opens the Task Pane for Slide Transition.
- Select the slide or slides that you want to apply
a transition to. To highlight multiple slides from the Slide
Sorter View, hold [Shift] and then click on each slide.
- From the Task Pane, choose a transition style, pick a speed

- Pick the option to advance the slides with a
mouse click and/or a set period of time. Additional options

- Once a slide is formatted with a transition or other
animation, a faint star displays in the bottom-left corner
of the slide in the Slide Sorter view. Click on this star at
any time to play the animations.
To remove a transition, repeat the steps above and select
the style of "No Transition."
