Anatomy of a Link

Linking (or hyperlinking) makes objects and documents "connected" to each other. To provide an analogy, consider each slide or presentation to be an individual computer on a network. Individual computers do some awesome work, but the network is much more useful, and increases the worth of each individual computer. In this case, the linking adds the "network" to your PowerPoint files. Linking can happen from one slide to another, or even to another file or a website from within PowerPoint presentations. In each of these linking scenarios, you will find that three factors are always present.

Linking Between Slides

While you can link from an anchor object on a slide to almost anywhere, you will certainly want first to explore how you can link between slides in the same presentation. This is simple to do, and also very useful because it lets you use your presentation in a non-linear way and you are not limited to viewing your slides in a sequential order.
Linking to Another Presentation

We already explored how you can link from an anchor object to any slide within the active presentation. However, this sort of linking is only the beginning of the possibilities for linking that PowerPoint 2013 provides. To take this to the next level, we will learn how you can link from an anchor object to any other PowerPoint presentation. In fact, you can also link to a particular slide in another presentation too!
Linking to Web Pages

Linking from within PowerPoint allows you to use your slides as a jumping point to provide even more content! We all know that the internet is a storehouse of so much content, and sometimes you may want a click on your slide to open a web page. Show the web page to your audience, close it and you are back on the slide you clicked. You can now seamlessly move on to your next slide. This sort of activity is easy to recreate.
