Microsoft PowerPoint 2010: How to add hyperlinks to presentation on Windows XP?
You can add links to relevant websites in your Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 presentation, once you have completed the task of adding content, images, videos, etc. to it. This is because, once everything else is in place, you will have a better idea of the placement of the website links and you will also have clarity on how many will be too much or too little. Therefore, once all the above is clear for you, you can follow the steps given below and complete the task of adding a website link or hyper-linking a particular word in the presentation with a relevant website that is live on the web.
The easy step solution that you can follow on your Windows XP PC is:
- 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.
Pressing the "F5" key will refresh the program and let the changes (in this case adding the link) take effect. Now using the same process, you can add as many links as you need or hyperlink as many words in the text as required. Using too many hyperlinks would kill the purpose, therefore add only relevant and good links (good content, good layout, and genuine websites only) and make your presentation fun to look out for.
