PowerPoint Pearls: Inserting a New Slide

Inserting a new slide should be one of the most obvious tasks in PowerPoint, but it’s not.

The New icon, which sits in a prime location (the first icon in the first row), is part of the Standard Toolbar. Rather than adding a slide to your presentation, selecting this icon will open a new presentation.

When creating a presentation, new slides are inserted in sequence. If you want to insert a slide between two existing slides, select the slide that will precede your new slide.

To insert a new slide:

  1. Click on Insert, New Slide... or click on Common Tasks, New Slide... or use the shortcut Ctrl-M.

  2. Choose the AutoLayout for the new slide
