Hyperlink Not Working in PowerPoint

When I copy and paste a hyperlink into a PowerPoint presentation it doesn't show the press CTRL and click to open link.  (Works on MS Word) ,

Any way around this restriction?  Is this new in 2010?


Thanks

Hyperlinks in PowerPoint don't work with CTRL+Click like they do in Word. In PowerPoint, they only work when you're in slide show view.

What Echo said. You can run links in edit view only by RIGHT CLICK > Open Hyperlink.
