Compare Presentations Manually

While PowerPoint does have an option to automatically compare presentations, sometimes doing this comparison manually can be actually more effective, especially when you have fewer changes in the first place. You can place both presentations side by side and compare individual slides.
Reuse Slides

Reusing your existing slides can be a great help: first you need not recreate stuff you already have and secondly you are saving so much time that you can use more effectively to practice your presentation! Having said that, always start by creating an outline of your presentation. This is important because it gives you an opportunity to plan your slides all over again. Thereafter, reuse any existing slides. PowerPoint provides a quick command that locates specific slides, and enables you to add it to the active presentation. While this process works the same way in all versions of PowerPoint, there are small interface changes -- in this tutorial, we'll show you how to reuse slides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows.
