How To Create A Table Of Contents In Powerpoint

Do you have a presentation coming up and want to ensure that it is organized, inviting, and professional? Creating a Table of Contents in Powerpoint is an excellent way to give your project structure and help your audience quickly understand the points you are trying to make.

In this blog post, we’ll walk you through how to create a quick Table of Contents for your Powerpoint presentation so you can ensure that your next big presentation goes off without a hitch!

Step 1: Create an Empty Slide for Your Table of Contents

The first step in creating your Table of Contents is to create an empty slide. To do this, open your presentation file and click the “Insert” tab on the top navigation bar. Then select “New Slide” from the top left.

The empty slide will show up in the presentation window. In the “Click to add title” box, type in the words “Table of Contents”.

Step 2: Copy Slides Titles

Once you have created your empty slide, you’ll want to copy and paste all of your slides into the new Table of Contents. To do this quickly, go to the “View” tab and click on the “Outline View” option.

This will show your presentation as an outline with all the titles and data listed. Right-click on the outline pane with your mouse and select “Collapse” > “Collapse All”. Now you’ll have the list of all the titles in your presentation.

Select all the slides in the outline pane, right-click, and select “Copy”.

Step 3: Paste the Slides Titles into the Table of Contents Slide

Next, go back to the Table of Contents slide you created in Step 1. Right-click on the text box below the title and select “Paste”. The titles from your outline view will appear on the slide.

Now you can customize the look of your Table of Contents slide if you want. You can change the font type and size, as well as color and add bullet points for each title.

Step 4: Add Hyperlinks to Your Table of Contents

The final step is to add hyperlinks to your Table of Contents. This will enable you to quickly jump from one slide in your presentation to another by simply clicking on the corresponding title in your Table of Contents.

To do this, select each title in the Table of Contents, right-click with your mouse, and select “Hyperlink”.

In the pop-up window, select “Place in This Document” under “Link to”. Then select the slide title under “Select a place in this document” and press “Ok”. Repeat the same action for the other titles.

That’s it! You have now successfully created a Table of Contents for your Powerpoint presentation.
