In longer presentations, linking from one slide to another using a hyperlink can be very useful. You will be able to keep the presentation’s key points accessible and avoid feeling “lost” during the presentation. This guide will show you how to create a link to access a specific slide in Google Slides.
- Open your presentation in Google Slides.
- Find an element in the current slide that you want to turn into a link. Remember that you can turn words, images, and certain objects into an interactive link that will send users to a slide. In this article, we’ll choose a word.
- Highlight your chosen element and go to the Insert tab. Choose Link in the dropdown menu.
Note: You also can press Cmd + K on Mac or Ctrl + K on Windows to bring up the link dialog box.
- Once the link dialog box appears below the object, select the Slides in this presentation option at the bottom.
- Select what slide you want to link the object to. In this article, we’ll choose the Next Slide option, although you can also pick specific slides.
- After choosing a slide, the word will change into a hyperlink format, as shown in the image below. You can now access your selected slide by clicking on the hyperlink embedded in the word.
- In the case of shapes, you’ll need to click them first to show the hyperlink to your chosen slide.
