Using Summary Slides in PowerPoint

A Summary slide is like a Menu slide. Unlike earlier versions of PowerPoint, which had a built-in summary slide feature, PowerPoint requires you to construct it manually.

To create a Summary Slide;

  • From the Home Ribbon, in the Slides group, choose the New Slide drop-down arrow
  • Choose Title and Content

Title and Content option

  • Make sure this new slide is selected in the Slides tab in the left pane
  • Enter a Title for the slide
  • Copy and Paste each slide title from the slides you want to include to the summary slide as bullet points
  • If you want to link the headings to the individual pages you need to insert each as a Hyperlink
