How To Insert Hyperlinks
Hyperlinks add the capability of moving from one position to another quickly and easily, such as linking to another slide, another file, or even to a web site.
- Highlight the text or graphics to link
- Insert Tab > Links command group > Hyperlink
- Choose the target (Place in this document)
- Choose the slide
Once a link has been followed, the linked text will change color. You may want to create a “Return” hyperlink. One advantage of hyperlinking to a separate file is that the size of the presentation file remains smaller than if the file was inserted into the presentation. A disadvantage of linking separate files is that if the name of the linked document changes or if it is moved into a different directory, the link will be broken and the information will not be accessible.
