Creating a Powerpoint presentation for your audience can be a difficult and time-consuming task. But when that presentation needs to be shown to multiple audiences, this difficulty can be multiplied as you now need to create additional slideshows.
But if the presentation for both audiences shares a lot of information, then you can actually save some time by creating one presentation, and simply hiding the slides that you don’t need to show to one of those audiences. Our guide below will show you how to hide a slide in Powerpoint.
How to Hide a Slide in Powerpoint
The steps in this article were performed in the Powerpoint for Office 365 version of the program, but also work in other versions of the program as well.
Step 1: Open your presentation in Powerpoint.
Step 2: Select the slide from the left column that you want to hide.
Step 3: Right-click the selected slide, then choose the Hide Slide option.
You will note that a slide is hidden because there is a slash through the slide number, as indicated in the picture below. You can also unhide a slide by right-clicking it again, then selecting the Hide Slide option again.
