You can create a hyperlink from any object — including text, shapes, tables, graphs, and pictures. You insert hyperlinks by clicking Insert Hyperlink .
buttons: PowerPoint also comes with some ready-made action
buttons (Action Buttons command, Slide Show menu) that you
can insert in your presentation and define hyperlinks for. Action buttons
contain shapes, such as right and left arrows. Use them when you want to
include commonly understood symbols for going to next, previous, first,
and last slides. You can use these buttons for a self-running presentation
at a kiosk or for a presentation that you plan to publish on your company
intranet or the Internet. PowerPoint also has action buttons for playing
movies or sounds.
