With the use of Sections, you can make your presentation slides easy to manage. Adding and renaming Sections enables you to logically categorize your presentation slides. Even after dividing your slides into Sections, you will want to move slides from one Section to another. Follow these steps to learn how to do so in PowerPoint 2013:
- Open your presentation that is already
added with sections.
Slide Sorter view and click
upon the slide that you want to move to a different Section. In Figure 1, below you can see
that we selected slide 7 within the Section named 'Timeline' (shown highlighted in
blue within Figure 1) -- the selected slide will be surrounded by a red
highlight (refer to Figure 1 again). You can also select more than one slide if required.

- Drag the selected slide(s) with the left mouse button held down to the Section where you want it to be placed.
In Figure 2 below you can see that the selected slide is being dragged into a new Section named
'Next Steps and Action Items' (shown highlighted in blue within
Figure 2). You can see a red highlight around the slide being dragged within the new Section, as shown in Figure 2. You can also drag the slide to a position
between two existing slides.

- Release the mouse button at the position where the slide is to be placed. This will move the selected slide from the previous Section to
the new Section, as shown in Figure 3.

Similarly, you can select multiple slides (both sequential or non sequential) and drag to a new Section.
