Create an Interactive Table of Contents, or Easily Zoom to Different Slides in a PowerPoint Deck


Sometimes large PowerPoint decks can be difficult to navigate, especially when you’re in presentation mode. Sure, you can hyperlink specific slides, but did you know about the “Zoom” features that make it a lot easier?

In this hands-on tutorial, I’ll show you three ways to make your PowerPoint presentation more interactive, using the Section Zoom, Slide Zoom and Summary Zoom features. These will automatically link up slides/sections, and give you a nice animation as you zoom in and out.
