Remove slides in PowerPoint.

The easiest way to delete a slide in PowerPoint is to simply use the PowerPoint editor. When you open your presentation in PowerPoint, you should see a numbered list of the slides on the left side of your screen. If not, click on the View tab on the top toolbar and choose Normal.

To delete a slide, simply highlight the slide you want to delete by clicking it in the left slide list and pressing either delete or backspace on your keyboard. You can also right-click on the slide you want to remove and choose the Delete Slide option.

To remove multiple slides at a time, hold the Ctrl key and click on the slides you want to remove. Then, just press the delete or backspace key. It’s as simple as that.
