Hide or show a slide
If there is a slide that should be included in the presentation file, but you don't want it to appear in the slide show, you can hide the slide.
A hidden slide remains in the file; it is merely hidden when you run Slide Show view. You can switch between the Hide Slide and Unhide Slide options for any slide in the presentation.
While editing slides in Normal view, in the navigation pane on the left, you can hide or unhide a slide, as described below. In Slide Sorter view, you can use the same method to hide or unhide a slide. And while you're presenting to an audience, you can unhide a slide, as described below.
Hide a slide
In the left navigation pane, select the thumbnail image of the slide you want to hide.
Unhide a slide
In the left navigation pane, select the hidden slide you want to unhide.
Right-click the slide, then select Unhide Slide .
Show a hidden slide during a presentation
If you're in Slide Show view and you decide that you want to show a hidden slide, you can do so:
Right-click the current slide and select See All Slides .
The screen switches to a thumbnail list of all the slides in the presentation.
Select the hidden slide you want to show.
The selected slide is shown full-screen and the slide show resumes.
If you are using presenter view, your audience won't see the steps you take to select the slide. They will simply see the slide you select in step 2.
Right-click the slide, and then click Unhide Slide .
In the left navigation pane, select the slide you want to hide.
Control-click the slide, then select Unhide Slide .
Do one of the following:
If you're presenting with the full screen slide show on all monitors, go to the slide that appears before the hidden slide, and then press H.
If you're using Presenter view, move the pointer to the bottom of the screen to access the slide navigation pane, and then click the hidden slide.
Why hide slides?
Hiding slides is particularly useful when you have added slides to a presentation that provide different levels of detail on the subject matter, perhaps for different audiences. You can mark these slides as hidden so that they are not displayed in your main slide show, but you can still access them if you need to.
For example, a member of your audience might ask you to explain an item in more detail. In that case, you can reveal the hidden slides that contain those details. However, if time is short and the audience is comprehending the concepts that you are delivering, you may want to keep the slides with the supplementary information hidden so that you can continue your presentation without visibly skipping over slides.
