create links to slides from the index page

Hello,

i have a powerpoint presentation with 10 slides. I would like to create an index page where all the index numbers (1-10) are linked to their appropriate slide. So, clicking slide 4 in the index will automatically go to the actual slide 4.
Can one write a macro that will create the index page with links , say slide 1, for any amount of slides in a presentation?

Thank you,
CC

Which version of PowerPoint are you using. If 2016 with Office365 then you could do this by using the Insert / Zoom / Slide Zoom feature.

Jamie, thanks for that. Its not quite what I wanted as you still have to right click the zoom slide and then press GoTo but its enough for what I need.

If you're using the Zoom feature from the Links group of the Insert tab then you should not need to right click to activate the slide during a slide show.

See this quick video example that shows how you can drag slides from the thumbnail pane and use the Insert tab.

PowerPoint is not really designed to provide navigation interaction in the Normal (non-slide show) view. If you can't guarantee that the presenter will enter the slide show mode you can either:

1. Add a full slide shape to the first slide and write the text inside "Press F5 to start the slide show". Set any Entrance animation on that shape and set it to Trigger on click of itself. It will therefore never appear in slide show mode.
2. Save the presentation as a .PPSX file and distribute it.
