Dear experts,

I have powerpoint in which there is a small text both at the top and the bottom of the slide and both of these are different texts

The issue I have in hand is I am unable to click on these and hence unable to either delete or amend the text.

Kindly suggest to change/delete these texts.

Thank you

If you select any item and press the TAB key, does it move between the items in the slide?

Can you upload the slide?
If you can't select the various items, it sounds like it's an inserted graphic file.
When you select the text or double click it, do you get the small "handle" boxes around the image or around the border of the entire slide?

Right click  on those texts and see the properties, then if you see the same info, then it must be the background image.

are you sure it is not the header and footer?  if not then it could be a background.

Go to View >> Slide Master. Can it be deleted on the large master or any of the smaller layouts?

Anything entered in the Slide Master will show on all slides.

This would be useful for Layout Template, background colours, headers, footers, logos etc to ensure that all slides are uniform

If you are unable to delete on the actual slide then it won't be in the footer placeholder but in a normal textbox that someone has added to the master.
