Sections make your presentation slides easy to manage. Plus, adding and renaming Sections enables you to logically categorize your presentation slides. But what happens next in a logical workflow may get you some worries. Even after dividing your slides into Sections, you will want to move slides from one Section to another. How do you do that? Follow these steps to learn how to do so in PowerPoint 2016:

  1. Open your presentation that already has sections added. Access 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 6 within the Section named Content (shown highlighted in blue within Figure 1). The selected slide will be highlighted (refer to Figure 1 again). You can also select more than one slide if required.

  2. Drag the selected slide(s) with the primary 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 'Resources' (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.

  3. 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.

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

Tip: Hold the Ctrl key while you drag slides from one Section to another to make a copy of the slide rather than moving it altogether.
