How to Add Transitions to PowerPoint 2010 Presentation Slides

By adding simple transitions to your Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 slides, you can help turn a dull presentation into a slightly less dull presentation :) This brief tutorial will show you how to do just that.

  1. Start out by selecting the slide you want to add a transition to. I’m using the first one in my example (see screenshot below). This means when I start the presentation, the transition will occur as the slide is first displayed.

  5. Now you just need to select the style of slide transition you’d like to use. When you choose one, it will automatically preview that style in your main PowerPoint window.

    Continue to select slides and transitions for each one until you’re happy with the result.
