Reusing Existing Slides

If your presentations often include one or more slides that provide the same basic information, you don't have to recreate the slides for each presentation. For example, if you create a slide that shows your company's product development cycle for one new product presentation, you might want to use variations of that same slide in all new product presentations. You can easily tell PowerPoint to copy a slide and insert in a specific location in a different presentation. The slide will assume the formatting of its new presentation.

In this exercise, you will insert slides from a presentation stored on your hard disk into the active presentation.
