OS: Windows 7 and 8






Sections in PowerPoint is a feature that lets you organize slides into segments or divisions for easier management. For instance if you have many slides, you may find the content difficult to handle, edit, or even deliver. And if you have a few slides, even then you may have the need to organize them logically in Sections. The Section option within PowerPoint 2013 enables you to divide your presentation slides into logical parts.

By default there are no Sections within the new presentations that you create. You first need to add a Section. After you create a Section, you can display or hide slides within that Section as required. Figure 1 below shows a sample presentation with a few logically organized sections, as seen within the Slides Pane in Normal view. Notice how each Section is named to describe its content slides. The number suffixed after the Section name represents the number of slides within that Section.

Now, look at Figure 2 where you can see the same Sections, but now as viewed in Slide Sorter view.

After creating Sections, you can move them backward and forward in a presentation. Also, you can go directly to a particular Section during the slide show. And, you can also print slides only within one or more Sections.
