Is there any way or any tool or plugin, that would make it possible, from within a PowerPoint presentation, to open a window, like a popup, with additional information on any matter, when clicking some image or text, working as if it was a hyperlink?

Did you want it to open a Word or Excel Document or some type of web page?  Let me know and then I can help a wee bit more.

Hi, networkfrau,

I hadn't thought about opening Word or Excel docs, it would also be great. Another good thing would be opening a page, if connected to the web.

But my main intention is to open some text or images (it could even be another PPT screen), without leaving the one I am displaying.

It was not exactly what I wanted, but it helped a little.
