Animating slides

Animating slides involves adding movement and sometimes sound to text or to the slides in a presentation. Animation can help create a livelier and more interesting slide show. PowerPoint provides some preset animation and allows you to customize the animation to fit your needs.

To animate slides using animation schemes:

  • Open the PowerPoint presentation you want to work on.
  • Select the slide you want to animate.
  • In the task pane, click the down-pointing arrow next to New PresentationSlide DesignAnimation Schemes.
