Learn how to duplicate slides in PowerPoint Online.


Product/Version: PowerPoint Online

OS: Windows and Mac OS X

Duplicating slides is a task that can be helpful, yet its value is not always understood. The first question asked is why would anyone want to duplicate slides? There are many reasons to do so. You may want to:

  1. Create another slide that is similar to what you already have.
  2. Use the same slide twice.
  3. Create a slightly edited chart than what you already have on an existing slide; duplicating and editing is easier than redoing it again.

Whatever your reasons may be, it is easy to duplicate slides in PowerPoint Online:

Open your presentation and select the slide(s) to be duplicated within the Slides Pane. In Figure 1 below, you can see that we have selected two slides (highlighted in red).
