Working with Hyperlinks

If you've ever surfed the World Wide Web, you're already familiar with hyperlinks. PowerPoint offers hyperlinks, too. By clicking your mouse on a linked object, you can jump to another location in your presentation, to another program, or even to a location on the Web.

Unlike a book or a typical slideshow in which you must proceed sequentially through the material, a hyperlinked presentation can let you move through a presentation in whatever order makes sense for the audience or let you hide information that you can show only if your audience needs or asks for it. Suppose that, for example, you are making a presentation to the board of directors of your entertainment company. You suspect some board members will want to know more about current promotions by a rival company. You can create a hyperlink in your slideshow that opens up your Web browser, connects to the Internet, and displays your competitor's Web site. Of course, if no one asks or if time is running short, you don't even need to use the link. But you know it's there, just in case.
