Controlling Your Slide Shows--Part 3 of 4
In a previous tip, we showed you how to navigate between slides in your screen show using keystrokes rather than mouse clicks. PowerPoint also gives you several useful ways to navigate on any given slide in your presentation:
If you have a slide with hyperlinks that navigate to a Web site, display a movie, run a macro, or some other action PowerPoint supports. If you still want to keep your hands off the moust, you can still activate your hyperlinks.
Press the Tab key to go to the first hyperlink on a slide, and then press Enter (while that link is selected) to activate its "mouse click" action. If needed, you can press Shift-Enter instead to perform the "mouse-over" action of the hyperlink.
You can press Tab repeatedly to cycle forward one at a time through the hyperlinks on the slide or Shift-Tab to cycle backwards.
If you want to disable the on-screen pop-up button to cut down on screen clutter, or if you want to access one of its functions, press Shift-F10, and then navigate with your arrow keys or mouse to the option you want.
