PowerPoint Keyboard Shortcuts

Here's the most comprehensive list of PowerPoint for the Web keyboard shortcuts that we know about. Many users are not aware that the in-browser PowerPoint for the Web supports an amazing number of keyboard shortcuts! Since these shortcuts may differ depending upon whether you are using a Windows or a Mac computer, all the keyboard shortcuts listed on this page have been tested using the PowerPoint for the Web on the Safari web browser on Mac OS X.

How many of these over 50 keyboard shortcuts do you presently use? If you discover a shortcut key not listed here, please contact us through our feedback form.

The shortcuts listed on this page use the US English keyboard layout. If you are using a non-US or non-English keyboard layout, then the keyboard shortcuts may not correspond exactly in some cases. You can learn about this issue and other reasons why some shortcuts may not work in our PowerPoint Keyboard Shortcuts Not Working page.
