"How to Copy Slides From Other PowerPoint Presentations?"


There are several ways to copy slides from other presentations. These included:

  • Open the presentation, save it under a different name, and then delete the slides that you don't want.
  • Open two PowerPoint windows side-by-side and drag-and-drop slides between them.
  • Open two PowerPoint presentations, copy slides from one of them to the Clipboard (Ctrl+C), and then paste them into the other presentation (Ctrl+V).
  • Use the PowerPoint Reuse Slides feature, as described here.


To reuse slides from other presentations

  • On the Home tab, in the Slides group, click the lower portion (with down-pointing arrow) of the New Slide icon to open its menu.
  • Click Reuse Slides. The Reuse Slides pane appears.

  • OR Click the Browse button and then click Browse File.
  • In the Browse dialog box, select the presentation from which you want to copy slides, and click Open.
  • Thumbnail images of the slides in the presentation appear in the Reuse Slides pane.
  • If you want to keep the source formatting when copying slides, select the Keep Source Formatting check box at the bottom of the task pane.
  • To insert a single slide, click on the particular slide.
  • To insert all slides at once, right-click any slide and choose Insert All Slides.
  • To copy only the theme (not the content), right-click any slide and choose Apply Theme to All Slides, or Apply Theme to Selected Slides.


Note: Copying the theme with the Apply Theme to All/Selected Slides command does not copy the background graphics, layouts, or anything else other than font, color, and effect choices.
