Compare Presentations Manually in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

Learn how to compare presentation slides manually in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows.


Product/Version: PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

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:

  1. Open two presentations.
  2. Access the View tab of the Ribbon and click the Arrange All button, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 1.
  3. Arrange All button

  5. Arranged presentations side by side
