Organizing PowerPoint Slides and Your Thoughts Using “Sections”

A very effective way to organize your PowerPoint slides and think through your slideshow is to create “sections” within the slide sorter view. As you can see here, section headers capture the slides that are relevant to that section. Like folders within Windows Explorer, you can collapse/hide or expand/open the section to see just those slides that are related to the section that you want to see.
