Microsoft PowerPoint 2010: How to add hyperlinks to presentation on Windows Vista?
While creating a presentation using the Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 application, you may come across several live websites that hold content, Infographics, pictures and videos that are relevant to your presentation and the content is useful too. Rather than copying and pasting the stuff on your presentation slides, you can opt to add the links of the webpage on your slide or better still hyperlink a particular word and directly enjoy launching the live page, straight from your presentation.
If you are using a Windows Vista PC, this is what you can do:
- Open the site whose link you wish to add
- Right click on the link and click on “Copy”, and then close the web browser.
- Open Microsoft PowerPoint 2010
- Right click on the new slide and click on “Paste”
- Now hit “ENTER” and there you have your hyperlink on the slide
- To hyperlink a single word, make new slide and then type text in placeholder text box.
- Select the text which you want to use as a hyperlink.
- Right click on the word you wish to hyperlink and then click on “Hyperlink” from the drop down menu
- The Insert Hyperlink dialog box will appear.Â Right click in the given space, click on “Paste” and then click “OK”
- You can see the link in action when you press "F5" on your keyboard. This makes navigation much easier.
Before you add a live website’s links, make sure to check the authenticity and safety aspect of the site. If all is well, you can go ahead by using the links and adding them on your presentation slides or hyper-linking them as well.
