How to Add, change, or remove transitions between slides in PowerPoint 2016

Add or change a slide transition in PowerPoint 2016


1. Open PowerPoint 2016

2. Select the Transitions tab.

3. In the Thumbnail Pane, click the slide where you want to apply or change a transition. The transition setting dictates how that slide enters and the preceding slide exits – in our example below, if you add a transition to slide 3, it dictates how slide 2 leaves and slide 3 enters.

4. Click Effect Options to change how the transition occurs – for example, what direction the slide enters from.

5. Optional:

  • To set how fast the transition goes, enter a time in the Duration box. Set the number higher to make the transition go slower. For more about transition timing, see Set the speed and timing of transitions.
  • To add sound to your transition, select a sound in the Sound box, or select Other Sound to choose a .wav file from your computer.
  • If you want all slides in the presentation to transition the same way, click Apply To All.
  • 5. Click Preview to see what the transition looks like with all the settings.

    Remove a slide transition in PowerPoint 2016

    Remember that a transition applies to a slide’s entrance, not how it exits. So if you want to remove the exit effects for slide 2, remove the transition from slide 3.

  • Click the slide that you want to have no transition. Then on the Transitions tab, in the Transitions gallery, click None.
  • To remove transitions from all slides, select all the slides in your presentation (Ctrl+A) in the Thumbnail pane, and then on the Transitions tab, in the Transitions gallery, click None.
