PowerPoint Quick Tips

By Deborah J. Sparks

Do you reach for the mouse to move from placeholder to placeholder on a slide?  Instead, use the Ctrl+Enter keyboard shortcut. 

It will not only jump to the next placeholder, it will create a new slide with the same layout as the current one when you reach the last slide in the presentation.


  1. Two quick ways to add new slides:
  2. Ctrl + M to add a slide after the selected one
  3. Enter after clicking after/between slides in the slides thumbnail tab (the line beneath the thumbnail below appears when you click under the side)
