While developing a presentation, it is not unusual to move slides around to control the order in which they appear. Presentation provides a couple of very easy ways to move your slides.
Perhaps the easiest method is to simply drag the slides to where you want them. Using the slide thumbnails, visible at the left side of the screen, click on a slide you want to move and then drag it to a new location. As you do so, Presentation shows an indication that you are moving a slide and where that slide will appear when you release the mouse button. (See Figure 1.)

Another way to move slides is to choose one of the movement options from the Slide menu. These are the available options:
The "up" and "down" move options seem a bit cumbersome, unless you want to move a slide only a single position in the slide stack. (It is much easier to click and drag a slide.) The "beginning" and "end" options are quite handy, though, especially when you are working with a presentation that already contains many, many slides.
Text boxes can be a great aid in laying out the text in your slides or when you want to place text over the top of a graphic. ...Discover More
