How to Create a Looping Slideshow in PowerPoint

how to create a looping slideshow in powerpoint

You can easily create a looping slideshow using PowerPoint. A looping slideshow displays each slide automatically for a certain amount of time. Once that time has elapsed, the slide automatically continues to the next slide. Once the slideshow reaches the end, it repeats from the beginning.

  1. Open your PowerPoint presentation.
  2. Click the [Slide Show] tab > From the "Set Up" group, click "Set Up Slide Show".
  3. From the resulting dialogue box, check "Loop continuously until 'Esc'" under the "Show options" section > Click [OK].
  4. From the "Slides" preview side panel, click your first slide > Press and hold [Shift] and click your last slide. This will select all of your slides.
  5. Click the [Transitions] tab > From the "Timing" group, uncheck "On Mouse Click" and check "After".
  6. To adjust the time you would like each slide to display, click the up and down arrows in the "After:" field within the "Timing" group. When your slideshow reaches the last slide, it will automatically loop back to the beginning.
