Selecting Multiple Slides in Slide Sorter
You already know that you can click the thumbnail of a slide to select it in Slide Sorter view, but did you know that you can select and work with more than one slide at a time?

To select a continuous range of slides, you just click the first slide in the range to select it, then hold down the Shift key while you click to select the last slide in the range. All of the slides in between the two will be added to the selection as well. You can also click outside any of the slide images, then drag an imaginary rectangle around the group of slides you want to select. Any slides within or touched by this imaginary rectangle will be selected.

To select a discontinuous range of slides, you click the first slide you want to select, then hold down the Ctrl key as you click each additional slide you want to add to the selection. If you make a mistake, Ctrl-click a selected slide again to deselect it.

To select all of the slides in the presentation, press Ctrl-A.
