A Web page hyperlink lets you convert text into a hyperlink that can load your default browser and display any Web site. When you exit the browser (or just switch back to PowerPoint), you can see your slide again and continue with your presentation.
By accessing a Web site, you can avoid copying data and pasting it on a slide. For example, if you're giving a presentation about advertising, you can create Web page hyperlinks to show how your competitors use the Internet to advertise and sell their products.
To create a Web page hyperlink, follow these steps:
1. Highlight the text in a title or subtitle text box that you want to turn into a Web page hyperlink.
2. Click the Insert tab.
3. Click the Hyperlink icon in the Links group.
The Insert Hyperlink dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 12-5.
The Insert Hyperlink dialog box lets you type in a Web site address.
4. Click in the Address text box and type a Web site address, such as
Www. microsoft. com.
5. Click OK.
PowerPoint underlines the text you selected in Step 1. When you view your presentation, PowerPoint turns the mouse pointer into a hand icon when you move the mouse over the hyperlink.
