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.
Follow these steps to manually compare two presentations in PowerPoint 2013:
- Open two presentations.
- Access the View tab of the
Ribbon and click the
Arrange All button, as shown highlighted in red within
Figure 1: Arrange All button
- This will arrange both the presentations in different windows side by side, as shown in
Figure 2. You can now compare individual slides on both presentations with each other.

- If you want to copy slides between two presentations, you can change the view on both open presentations to
Slide Sorter view, as shown in
