Quick tip: Microsoft PowerPoint short cuts (and the gems that are missing from the manual)

If you want to quickly move around Microsoft PowerPoint, this list of short cut key combinations come in very handy:


Like using

  • fuction button F5 to start a presentation from the first page
  • alt + F5 to start in presentor mode (even on a single screen)

But.. it looks like some interesting combinations are missing.


  • Shift + F5, to start the presentation from the current slide you have open (not from slide 1, but somewhere in the middle)
  • Shift + alt + F5: start presenter mode from the current slide page.

Just a quick tip…
