Top Keyboard Commands & Shortcuts for PowerPoint

Think Efficiently & Use the Keyboard!

To improve efficiency and shave hours off your presentation development time, it’s helpful to learn the keyboard shortcuts.

Keyboards aren’t just for typing. In conjunction with control, alt and shift keys (or the option and apple keys on the Mac), you can move along at a much faster pace than just using the mouse.

Rather than inefficiently moving the mouse all over the screen clicking on menu commands, learning a few simple control keys can speed up development and make creating presentations easier and faster.

    Creating concise, effective, limited-length presentations about complex topics is not easy for anyone, but Kevin Lerner brought it home for us. I hired him to help us with our investor deck with a goal of two weeks. He was motivated, timely, skilled, and very positive. Our goal was his goal. Our presentation was ready when we needed it and it made jaws drop. Kevin now IS our presentation team.

    Kevin was a great presenter, helping our team improve their presentations and learn more about PowerPoint. We have held two separate trainings with Kevin for two teams at our company. Everyone learned new things and came away with new ideas to improve their PPT presentations.

    Kevin is a rare blend of right-brain creative and left-brain strategic, and can easily help someone translate a slew of complex internally focused data into a powerful graphic, a glorious infographic, an amazing video, or a simple statement that gets to the point and drives results. I’m honored to have worked with Kevin, and proud to recommend him.
