How to Loop Your PowerPoint Presentations (Quickly)
Note: Watch this short tutorial screencast or follow the quick steps below, that compliment this video.
1. Select Your PowerPoint Slides to Loop
You can make PowerPoint run on a continuous loop easily. I'll click on the Transitions tab here on PowerPoint's ribbon and make sure all of my slides are selected here on the left side.
Note: In this tutorial we use the Simplicity PowerPoint Template. You can find more great PPT presentation templates on GraphicRiver or in our Ultimate Guide to the Best Microsoft PowerPoint Templates.
2. Set Timing of PowerPoint Presentation Loop
Let's start off by selecting how much time we want each slide to show. Let's tick the After box here and I'll put in 2 seconds, just to test the feature out. Now the slides will advance on their own, each after two seconds. Let's turn on the loop feature now.
3. Set Up the Slide Show Loop in PowerPoint
I'll click the Slide Show tab on the ribbon, and then click Set Up Slide Show. The option that we need to turn on is Loop continuously until 'Esc'. Let's go ahead and press OK to turn that feature on. Let's check to make sure this is all working.
I'll click on the first slide in my presentation, and then start the presentation in the lower right corner. After a couple of seconds, it goes to the next slide, then the next slide, and then back to the beginning. So you can see this is working perfectly. The loop feature works great to keep your presentation rolling continuously.
