Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 - Moving Slides

This guide will show you how to organize slides and move them as needed.

Organizing Slides Into Sections


  1. Click in between any two slides to begin separating the slides.
  2. Select the New Slide button in the main toolbar.
    1. Then select Title Slide.
    2. Type in the name of section.
    3. Repeat as needed. 
  3. Once this is done, PowerPoint needs to know that there’s a section slide.
    1. To do this, select Section, then Add Section.
    2. This will create text that at first says “untitled section” in red text.
    3. Rename the section by right clicking on it, and selecting Rename Section.

Rearranging Slides


  1. Select the slide which should be moved by left-clicking it in the navigation pane.
  2. Left-click and drag the slide to the the desired spot for it.
  3. Multiple slides can be moved at once by holding down the Shift key while left clicking. Then simply left-click and drag the group.
