How to zoom in on PowerPoint slides (3 different techniques)

  • PowerPoint Tutorials
  • Shortcuts & Hacks
  • December 27, 2017

How do you zoom in on something in PowerPoint without PowerPoint first centering in on your slide?

This was a great question we got from subscriber Derek (thanks Derek!).

And it’s not so intuitive…

For example, let’s say you want to zoom in on a specific icon or two to edit them, like in the picture below. How do you do it without scrolling around, driving yourself crazy?

Examples of things you might want to zoom in on on a PowerPoint slide

In this tutorial, you’ll learn 3 different ways to zoom in PowerPoint, plus a few sneaky places you might never have thought of zooming in PowerPoint before.

Looking for the NEW Zoom Transition?

If you want to learn all about the brand new Zoom Transition in PowerPoint that was added in 2016, see our other guide here .

The problem with the standard PowerPoint zoom

The problem with the standard PowerPoint zoom, is that PowerPoint automatically goes to the center of your slide as you zoom in.

The center zoom is great if the object that you want to edit is in the center of your slide, but if it’s not, that means you have to use the scroll bars to find what you are looking for.

The problem with the scroll bars is that they are hard to control, often jumping you over to the next slide as you try to find the object that you want to edit.

So instead of making your life easier (which is what they were designed to do), they make it harder.

3 Ways to Zoom in on an Object

how to zoom in during a powerpoint presentation

There are three different ways you can zoom in on a PowerPoint slide:

  • The View tab Zoom command (zoom dialog box)
  • The Zoom slider at the bottom of the screen
  • The CTRL + mouse spin wheel shortcut (my personal favorite because it’s universal, as you’ll see in a second)

If you are looking for the new zoom transition, you can learn more about what that is on the Microsoft blog here .

Pro Tip: Use the ‘Fit to Window’ tools

After zooming in on something in PowerPoint, you can quickly refit your PowerPoint window in one of two ways:

  • ‘Fit slide to current window’ in the lower right-hand corner your screen
  • ‘Fit to Window’ in the View tab

The two places where you can find the fit to slide commands

Zoom in on a Picture in PowerPoint

To zoom in a on a specific picture (or object) in PowerPoint, all you need to do is first select the object before you zoom. Once you select an object, any of the 3 zoom methods described above will zoom you specifically in on the object:

  • The zoom dialog box
  • The zoom slider
  • Using CTRL plus your mouse spin wheel

This zoom trick works on anything that you can select in PowerPoint, including zooming in on a table, zooming in on a chart, zooming in on a text box, etc.

Note:  If you are trying to zoom in on a picture to show a specific part of it, you can also just crop your picture down to the desired piece.

To learn all about how to crop pictures in PowerPoint,  read our step-by-step guide here .

If you have multiple objects that you want to zoom into and edit in PowerPoint, the fastest way to do that is to:

  • Select and zoom in on your first object
  • Edit or format your first object
  • Hit Fit Slide to Current Window
  • Select and zoom in on your second object
  • Edit or format your second object

If you have more than two objects, you can continue zooming in and out of your slide in this way to make all of your adjustments.

PowerPoint Thumbnail Zoom

Besides zooming in on a slide while editing it, you can also use the CTRL + mouse spin wheel shortcut to zoom in on the thumbnail images of your PowerPoint slides on the left.

Examples of zooming in and out of the thumbnail view in PowerPoint

Zooming in on the thumbnail images allows you to control how much of your presentation you see, and how much slide editing space you give yourself on the right.

Zooming in allows you to get a big thumbnail image of each of the preceding and following slides, while zooming out gives you an idea of how many slides are in your presentation.

Slide Sorter View Zoom

Another place you can zoom in PowerPoint to see the overall flow of your presentation, is Slide Sorter View. To open the Slide Sorter View, simply click the slide Sorter  command at the bottom of your screen.

The slide sorter command is at the bottom of the PowerPoint workspace window

All three zoom methods work in the Slide Sorter View:

Zooming in and out of the Slide Sorter View is useful when you want to see the overall flow of your slides within your presentation at varying levels of detail.

Slide Show View zoom

Two other places you can zoom in PowerPoint are the Slide Show Mode (F5) and Presenter View (SHIFT + F5) of your presentation. To see these PowerPoint shortcuts in action, check out the video below.

Start Slide Show PowerPoint Shortcuts

There are four keyboard shortcuts for starting slide show in PowerPoint:

Start slide show from the beginningF5
Start slide show from the current slideALT + F5
Start Presenter View from the beginningSHIFT + F5
Start Presenter View from the current slideALT + SHIFT + F5

Once you are in one of the presentation views of your slides, you can zoom in or zoom out by either using the CTRL + mouse spin wheel shortcut (if you have a mouse), or you can use the keyboard shortcuts listed below.

Zoom in (Slide Show Mode)CTRL + =
Zoom out (Slide Show Mode)CTRL + –
  • Zooming in allows you to focus on a specific section of your slide (focusing your audience’s attention on that section).
  • Zooming out allows you to see all the slides in your presentation as thumbnails.

View all slides view from the PowerPoint slide show mode

This is often an easier way to navigate the slides in your presentation if someone wants to go back and see something, rather than trying to remember where it was in your presentation.

Knowing how to properly zoom in and out of the objects you want to edit in PowerPoint will save you a ton of time.

The key to remember is that PowerPoint will use the object you have selected as the focal point of your zoom.

How to zoom in on small details in PowerPoint

Your email has been sent

Image of Susan Harkins

Some Microsoft PowerPoint slides have a lot going on. There’s might be a lot of small details or some important content, and editing that content isn’t practical. When this happens, you can create a zoom shape and use the grow animation to zoom in on the detail or content you’re talking about. Doing so allows you to retain the big picture, both visually and conceptually, while focusing on the heart of the discussion. In this article, we’ll create a zoom effect by animating a special shape, which I’ll call the zoom shape.

SEE: 69 Excel tips every user should master (TechRepublic)

This technique is simple but has a few steps:

  • We’ll create a duplicate slide with the same image.
  • Using a shape, we’ll outline the zoom area to create a zoom shape—the area we want to draw attention to by making it larger. This is a term I made up; you won’t find it as a shape option or setting.
  • We’ll merge the image and the zoom shape to remove everything but the zoom shape.
  • Finally, we’ll move the zoom shape to the original slide and add the grow animation.

I’m using Microsoft 365 on a Windows 10 64-bit system, but you can use earlier versions. You can work with your own image or download the demonstration .pptx and .ppt file s. This article assumes you have basic PowerPoint skills, such as inserting shapes and applying settings.

SEE: Windows 10: Lists of vocal commands for speech recognition and dictation (free PDF) (TechRepublic)

How to create the zoom shape

We’re going to need two copies of the map image shown in Figure A . One will be the actual slide; the second will supply the zoom shape. To create a duplicate slide, right-click the original map slide in the Navigation pane and choose Duplicate Slide from the resulting submenu ( Figure A ). PowerPoint will add the second slide, which you’ll see in the Navigation pane just below the original.

how to zoom in during a powerpoint presentation

Now we’re ready to create the zoom shape by covering that area with an oval shape and then merging the map image and the shape. Move to the second slide (if necessary) and then click the Insert tab. Grab the oval shape (in the Basic Shapes section) and while dragging it over the southern tip of South America hold down the Shift key to get a perfect circle, as shown in Figure B .

how to zoom in during a powerpoint presentation

With the shape still selected, use the Shape Outline option on the contextual Shape Format tab to set the outline color to red and the weight to 3 points (or anything you like).

The next step is to merge the map and the zoom shape. To do so, select both objects by selecting one, holding down the Shift key and clicking the other. With both the map and the shape selected, click the Merge Shapes dropdown (in the Insert Shapes group), and choose Intersect. Figure C shows the results; PowerPoint hides everything but the image in the zoom shape. If the Merge Shapes option is dimmed, make sure to select both the map and the shape; this feature doesn’t work with only one selected object.

how to zoom in during a powerpoint presentation

At this point, I want to mention that this effect won’t always be easy to apply if the zoom area has lots of surrounding or overlapping content. In Figure C , you can see that the zoom shape includes the longitude and latitude lines on the map. I did this on purpose; a picture is worth a thousand words. If those lines distract from the zoom shape, you can look for a new map that doesn’t include those lines. Or you can continue—that’s what we’re going to do. With the zoom shape created, it’s time to move it to the original slide and add the animation.

How to animate the zoom shape

We’re ready to add the zoom shape (in the duplicate slide) to the original slide and add the animation that “zooms in.” To do so, simply paste the zoom shape to the original slide and drag it until it’s a perfect match, as shown in Figure D . In this case, those lines we talked about are helpful! If you can’t line it up perfectly, use the Nudge feature to move the zoom shape a tad. To do so, hold down the Ctrl key and click the appropriate arrow key.

how to zoom in during a powerpoint presentation

With the zoom shape in place, we’re ready to move on to the last step. Before applying the animation, let’s determine how we want to trigger it. Most likely, you’ll want to use a click event; that way you can trigger the animation when you’re ready. When applying this to your own work, you can choose any event you like.

With the zoom shape selected, click the Animations tab and then click the gallery’s More button (circled in Figure E ) to expose all the animations. In the Emphasis section, click Grow/Shrink. Next, from the Effect Options dropdown, choose Huge.

how to zoom in during a powerpoint presentation

You’re done! To see the effect, run the show by pressing F5. When you’re ready to see the zoom effect, as shown in Figure F , click the slide.

This zoom technique requires a few steps and as shown, a bit of thought when selecting the best image, but it’s easy to implement considering the results.

Zoom Feature in PowerPoint – How to Use it Correctly!

It is hard to accept but even the most seasoned PowerPoint users find it hard to create a table of contents that is visually modern-looking and interactive! The “ Zoom ” feature can help not only with the table of contents but much more than that!

The zoom feature in PowerPoint helps create visual links between sections of your presentation. It makes the presentation interactive by adding a clickable thumbnail of a slide or a section in your presentation and allowing you to easily navigate within your presentation with cool effects!

Even if you use PowerPoint regularly, chances are you aren’t fully aware of the “Zoom” feature in PowerPoint.

And, by now if you are thinking about zooming in on the slides using the functions provided at the bottom-right corner of PowerPoint, then you really need to go through this article as you might not be aware of one of the most awesome features in PowerPoint called “ Zoom “.

Let’s explore this feature by checking out some of the different types of “zoom” that you can add to your presentation –

How to Zoom in PowerPoint While Presenting: A Step-by-Step Guide

When you’re presenting virtually, keeping your audience engaged can seem like climbing a mountain. PowerPoint’s zoom feature is like having a magic wand up your sleeve. By zooming in on crucial details, you can focus your audience’s attention precisely where you want it. Whether it’s highlighting a key statistic or diving into a complex graphic, zooming ensures that nothing important slips under the radar.

A computer screen with a PowerPoint presentation open. The presenter's cursor hovers over the zoom function in the toolbar

I remember a presentation where I needed to explain an intricate process diagram. Instead of a bland description, I used the zoom feature to walk my audience through each step. This not only clarified the details but also kept everyone hooked. Reactions were immediate – the engagement level skyrocketed, and questions flooded in.

For those juggling between different slides during a virtual presentation, PowerPoint’s Zoom can be a lifesaver. To use it, just go to Insert > Zoom and choose from Summary Zoom, Slide Zoom, or Section Zoom, depending on your needs. This allows you to navigate smoothly and maintain a dynamic flow, ensuring that your audience stays attentive and involved.

Setting Up Your Presentation Workspace

Creating the perfect workspace for your PowerPoint presentation involves selecting the right monitor setup, optimizing your tools, and managing your screen space efficiently. This ensures a smooth presentation experience for both you and your audience.

Choosing the Right Monitor and Resolution

Your monitor setup is critical. I recommend using two screens — one for presenter notes and another for the audience view.

Types of Monitors:

Standard resolution suitable for most presentations.
Higher resolution for detailed content.
Ultra-high resolution for high-quality visuals.

Connecting a second screen provides a seamless experience, as I can manage notes and upcoming slides while the audience remains engaged. Higher resolutions offer clearer visuals but also require more powerful hardware. Ensure your computer has the capability to support these resolutions without lag.

Optimizing PowerPoint and Other Tools for Your Audience

To keep my presentation engaging, I fine-tune my tools. In PowerPoint, I use the Presenter View to maintain control while showing slides to the audience.

Steps to Optimize:

I’m fond of utilizing Zoom for live annotations; it keeps my audience engaged. Sharing specific windows during Zoom calls ensures that participants see only the relevant content, preventing distractions.

Organizing Screen Space and Windows for Efficiency

Efficient screen space management is key. I typically dedicate my primary monitor to PowerPoint and use my secondary screen for navigation, notes, and additional tools. This prevents constant switching between windows.

Window Arrangement Tips:

  • Keep PowerPoint in fullscreen mode on the main screen.
  • Use Alt+Tab or a taskbar to switch apps quickly.
  • Organize windows side-by-side for quick access to notes and other materials.

For instance, I keep PowerPoint fullscreen on my primary monitor while my second screen displays notes and Zoom controls. This setup allows me to focus on my presentation without unnecessary distractions and keeps the session flow intact.

Mastering Slide Show Techniques

Learning to leverage slide show techniques can greatly enhance your presentations. Key models focus on using the Presenter View effectively, zooming into details and navigating seamlessly through slides.

Utilizing Presenter View to Your Advantage

Presenter View in PowerPoint is your command center. It lets you see your speaker notes while your audience only sees the main slide. To activate it:

1. Go to the “Slide Show” tab. 2. Check the “Use Presenter View” box.

Using this feature, I can keep my notes handy without shuffling through papers. It also displays a timer, so I know if I’m pacing correctly. Additionally, slide thumbnails let me jump to any slide effortlessly. Having this overview helps maintain my flow and keep my confidence high.

Enhancing Readability with Zoom and Resize Functions

To zoom in PowerPoint, you don’t need a magnifying glass. Simply use Ctrl + mouse wheel or Ctrl + Plus (+) to zoom in. Need to zoom out? Ctrl + Minus (-) does the trick. Resize text or images by clicking and dragging their corners.

Pro Tip: Using zoom functions can help your audience focus on a specific detail without distractions.

If a slide contains a lot of text or small images, I highlight the key points by zooming in and using bold or larger fonts. This ensures everyone stays engaged without straining their eyes.

Seamless Navigation During Presentations

Smooth transitions and easy navigation in your slide show stop you from needing to fumble with your mouse or keyboard. Starting your slide show is straightforward with F5 or Shift + F5 for your current slide. You can also use arrow keys or click to move through slides.

Nifty Feature: Jump to any slide using slide thumbnails in Presenter View.

For those moments when I need to reference back to a previous slide, accessing the exact one I need helps retain my audience’s attention. Additionally, setting up my slide show window can be done by selecting the “Browsed by an individual” mode. This mode keeps my presentation within a single window, enhancing control and ease.

By mastering these techniques, you maintain control, engage your audience, and deliver effective presentations.

Effective Use of Visual Aids and Tools

Leveraging visual aids and tools effectively can make or break a PowerPoint presentation. Key components include utilizing webcams and laser pointers, designing readable slides, and seamlessly navigating Zoom meetings.

Incorporating a Webcam and Laser Pointer for Impact

Presenting with a webcam adds a personal touch. It allows attendees to see your expressions and feel more connected. Position your webcam at eye level to maintain virtual eye contact.

Adding a laser pointer helps direct attention to key parts of your slides. In PowerPoint, you can activate a virtual laser pointer by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking your mouse.

Reflecting on my own experiences, using these tools keeps audiences more engaged. It’s like having a face-to-face chat, even when miles apart.

Designing Slides with Attention to Detail and Readability

Crafting slides with attention to detail ensures your message is understood. Use large, readable fonts and maintain high contrast between text and background. Stick to concise bullet points to avoid overwhelming your audience.

Images and graphics should support points, not clutter slides. Here’s a quick checklist:

  • Font size: Minimum 24pt
  • Font style: Sans-serif for readability
  • Contrast: Dark text on light background or vice versa
  • Images: Relevant and high-quality

Creating slides with these elements in mind makes information easy to digest.

Navigating Zoom Meetings While Presenting

Presenting via Zoom requires understanding how to share your screen and manage the PowerPoint Presenter View. This view allows displaying speaking notes and upcoming slides without sharing them with attendees.

Zoom transition between slides should be smooth to maintain flow. Practice switching between slides, Zoom’s chat pane, and other features. Utilize the “keep my video on while screen sharing” option to remain visible, ensuring attendees can see both you and the content.

I find it crucial to prepare for technical hiccups. Always have a backup plan if something goes awry. This level of preparedness puts my mind at ease and ensures a smooth presentation.

Final Tips for a Professional Virtual Presentation

When presenting on Zoom, I often emphasize lighting . Proper lighting ensures everyone can see me clearly. Having a light source in front of me, rather than behind, prevents shadows.

Engagement is crucial. I make eye contact by looking directly into the camera rather than at the screen. It’s like a digital handshake, creating a connection with my audience.

Joining the meeting a few minutes early is a routine. This allows me to test my audio, share my screen, and make final adjustments without feeling rushed.

A clean and professional background adds to my credibility. I either choose a tidy, real background or a professional virtual one to avoid distractions.

Using bullet points and emphasis in my presentation:

  • Bullet points keep the content clear and concise.
  • Bold text highlights key ideas.

Maintaining a conversational tone helps. I ask questions and encourage participation. For instance, prompting, “What do you think about this?” makes the presentation interactive.

Having a backup plan is essential. I ensure my phone is handy if my Mac or Windows machine fails. This way, I can quickly rejoin the meeting without causing delays.

Incorporating visual aids like tables or charts keeps the audience engaged. Here’s how I structure information:

Description Notes
Introduction Welcome Slide
Main Content Key Points

Practicing these small details can make a big difference in delivering a polished virtual presentation.

Save a zoom setting in PowerPoint or Excel

Word doesn't save zoom settings in documents. Instead, it opens a document at the last zoom level you used.

Excel for the web doesn't support saving the zoom level, because the View tab doesn't have a Zoom group, so you must use the status bar to change the zoom level. As a workaround, consider opening the file in Excel Desktop to save the zoom level using the following procedure.

Open the presentation or worksheet that you want to save with a particular zoom setting.

On the View tab, in the Zoom group, click Zoom .

Choose the setting that you want.

Click Save .

Think of it as building a Prezi inside PowerPoint. Jump from one point in your presentation to the next seamlessly by creating links to the different sections of your presentation.

By utilizing PowerPoint’s Slide Zoom, Section Zoom, and Summary Zoom, you can easily create an entertaining and engaging presentation for your audience. There are many different ways to add these to your presentation, so read on to learn how to use PowerPoint Zoom and implement it in the best ways!

What is powerpoint zoom.

PowerPoint’s Zoom feature is a tool that allows you to create interactive PowerPoint presentations . It enables you to zoom in and out of specific sections or slides, creating a more dynamic and immersive experience for your audience. With PowerPoint Zoom , you can easily create links or “zoom areas” on your slides such that when clicked during a presentation, can allow you to navigate to specific slides or sections and focus on the content that is most relevant at any given time—there’s no need to be stuck with whatever slide is chronologically next.

Why Use PowerPoint Zoom?

PowerPoint Zoom lets you present in a more flexible and interactive way. For instance, you can create a dynamic menu that allows your audience to help you choose which topics to cover first. With just a click, you can jump to that slide or section and relay that information.

PowerPoint Zoom is also particularly useful for storytelling , guiding your audience through a series of complex information without being restricted to a traditional linear slide progression.

No need for hyperlinks, tedious work, or coding—PowerPoint Zoom allows for a seamless setup and flow of your presentation.

Let’s dive right in and discover how to make a zoom effect in PowerPoint!

How to Make a Zoom Effect in PowerPoint?

PowerPoint’s Zoom feature consists of three different options: Slide Zoom, Section Zoom, and Summary Zoom. While their setups are similar, the reasons for using each one vary.

How to Make a Zoom Effect in PowerPoint?

Below we will delve into each of these PowerPoint Zoom options in depth.

Turn your PowerPoint into an interactive experience today with this Slide Zoom template!

When to use Slide Zoom? ⏲️

Slide Zoom, as the name suggests, allows you to create links and “zoom in” on the content of another slide without following the traditional slide-to-slide progression. This comes in especially handy when you want to direct your audience’s attention to a particular image, chart, or piece of information on a slide instantly.

How to use Slide Zoom? 💻

1. Select the Main Starting Slide : To use PowerPoint Slide Zoom, first select the starting slide where you intend to apply the Zoom effect. In our example, we are using the Iceberg Model illustration as our starting slide. We want to zoom into the different description slides from our Iceberg Model slide.

2. Access the Slide Zoom Feature : Next, click Insert > Zoom > Slide Zoom . From here, choose the slide, or slides, that you want to zoom into. Click Insert and a thumbnail or thumbnails of the slides will appear on your current slide.

powerpoint slide zoom

3. Rearrange the Thumbnails : Rearrange the thumbnails on your slide to match your design and layout.

4. Test the Slide Zoom: Now, in presentation mode, when you click on the slide thumbnails, you can zoom into the particular slides!

With a smooth Slide Zoom effect, you will notice that transitioning from slide to slide has become significantly more engaging!

Zoom Option: Zoom Background

Zoom Background

Notice the thick outline of each slide you added to Zoom? Let’s remove that for a cleaner, more professional look on your slides. 

To do that, click on the added Zoom slide thumbnail , then click the Zoom tab in the PowerPoint ribbon. Now, click on the Zoom Background option to hide the default background and match the background of the thumbnail to the background of your current slide.

Zoom Option: Return to Zoom

Another customizable option is the Return to Zoom feature.

With the current setup of Slide Zoom, once you click on the Zoom thumbnail and navigate to the zoomed in slide, you cannot return to the main starting slide. In other words, you will move on to the next slide in a linear order, with essentially an added zoom transition.

On the other hand, by applying Return to Zoom, you will be brought back to your main starting slide every time instead. This way you can click change the order of your slides. For example, with Return to Zoom enabled, when I can click on next slide after clicking on the “Phase #3 The Structure” slide, I will be brought back to the main starting slide instead of the “Phase #4 Mental Models” slide.

Return to Zoom

To make this happen, after selecting each of your Zoom slide thumbnails, simply click on the Return to Zoom option from the Zoom tab. 

Section Zoom

When to use section zoom ⏲️.

While Slide Zoom allows you to zoom into one slide at a time, Section Zoom allows you to zoom into a specific section containing multiple related slides of your presentation. This is especially helpful for longer presentations or presentations with multiple topics. 

How to use Section Zoom? 💻

Here, we have a deck about the Solar System. Each planet has its own section with a couple slides underneath each section. Our main slide has an overview of the whole Solar System. In this case, I would like to be able to click on a planet, then be able to learn more about that planet. You can easily do this with Section Zoom!

1. Select the Main Starting Slide : Similar to PowerPoint Slide Zoom, you have to select a starting slide where you intend to apply the Zoom effect for Section Zoom. Here we are using the Solar System slide as our main starting slide where we can zoom into the different planet sections.

2. Access the Section Zoom Feature : On the overview slide, click Insert > Zoom > Section Zoom . Then choose the sections you would like to Zoom into and click Insert . The thumbnails of the first slide of each section will appear in your current slide.

Zoom Option: Change the Image

Don’t like how the different thumbnails are making your slide looks cluttered, fret not, you can change the thumbnail image of your slides for easier viewing. 

how to zoom in during a powerpoint presentation

To do this, right-click on the zoom slide thumbnail and select Change Image . Then, substitute it with an image or screenshot from your device. For instance, you can take screenshots of the different segments in your slide to “hide” the zoom slide thumbnails underneath these screenshots.

Now, when you enter presentation mode, instead of clicking z zoom slide thumbnail, you can click on a planet to zoom into a desired section! Watch this video to learn exactly how to do it! 

Summary Zoom

When to use summary zoom ⏲️.

The third and final PowerPoint Zoom feature is Summary Zoom. It lets you create a summary or overview slide that acts as a hub for your presentation. It is perfect for those times when you want to give your audience a quick recap or provide them with a visual roadmap of your presentation.

Similar to Section Zoom, Summary Zoom contains links to specific sections or slides in your presentation, allowing you to navigate to the most relevant parts of your presentation. The main distinction lies in the fact that the Summary Zoom feature will automatically generate a summary slide containing thumbnails of each section or slide for your convenience.

How to use Summary Zoom? 💻

1. Select the Main Starting Slide : Similar to both PowerPoint Slide Zoom and Section Zoom, you have to select a starting slide where you intend to apply the Zoom effect for Summary

2. Access the Summary Soon Feature : To use PowerPoint Summary Zoom, click Insert > Zoom > Summary Zoom . This will create a new slide that displays a summary of your presentation, with thumbnails of each slide.

how to zoom in during a powerpoint presentation

3. Customize Appearance : You can customize the appearance of the Summary Zoom slide by selecting the Format tab. Here, you can choose from various layouts, fonts, and colors to make the slide visually appealing and aligned with your presentation’s theme.

During your presentation, easily navigate to any slide by clicking on the different Zoom slide thumbnails. It’s a great way to give your audience an easy-to-follow roadmap and ensure they stay engaged and focused throughout your presentation.

Real-World PowerPoint Zoom Examples to Engage Your Audience

Here are some real-life examples of how to use PowerPoint Zoom to create engaging and immersive presentations: 

  • Sales Pitch

Create interactive slides with zoomed-in images and key features for your products or services. By allowing the audience to explore products in detail, you can generate more interest and engagement during a pitch.

  • Educational Lecture with Organised Sections

Similar to our Solar System deck, you can organize your presentation into sections so that students can go through the presentations at their own pace starting with what interests them the most.

Add interactive questions to the presentation using ClassPoint , to make it even more engaging. 

  • Team Meeting Roadmap

Create an engaging team meeting with Summary Zoom. Highlight key milestones and deliverables in a visual and clear roadmap to help the team stay focused and engaged throughout the meeting.

  • Interactive Visuals 

Use maps and charts as your overview slide and add zoom slide thumbnails of added information to showcase further data, information, and analytics. 

  • Virtual Tours or Walkthroughs

Simulate a virtual tour or walkthrough using images on your slides. Add the Zoom feature to replicate “moving” from one “location” to another.

PowerPoint Zoom FAQ

Here are some common FAQ’s about this powerful tool:

What are the differences between the PowerPoint Zoom Options? 

Slide Zoom zooms from one slide to the next while Section Zoom zooms into a whole section of your presentation before bringing you back to the overview slide. The Summary Zoom option provides you with a Table-of-Contents-like slide for an easy overview of your whole presentation. 

How to make Prezi in PowerPoint? 

You can make a PowerPoint that looks similar to Prezi with PowerPoint’s Zoom feature. With your selected slide to Zoom into, click on the Insert tab, Zoom, and select Slide, Section, or Summary Zoom.

Can I use PowerPoint Zoom on any version of PowerPoint?

PowerPoint Zoom is available on PowerPoint 2019, PowerPoint 2016, and PowerPoint for Microsoft 365. Make sure you have the latest version to take advantage of this feature.

For more advanced zooming, use the Zoom Slide feature. Zoom slides act like slide thumbnails that you can click to “zoom in” on.

Now when presenting, you can jump between slides in any order by clicking the zoomed slide thumbnails. This lets you dynamically zoom to important information.

Presentation Zoom Tips for Engaging Audiences

How to use Zoom in PowerPoint for interactive presentations.

Use PowerPoint’s Zoom feature to add navigation to your presentations, without breaking a sweat. 

Regular readers will know that Buffalo 7 is basically PowerPoint’s unofficial fan club. We rave about the possibilities of PowerPoint on a daily basis. Sometimes we’ll talk about  other presentation software , but it’s always being compared to the OG of presentation programs.  

However, we work with PowerPoint day in, day out, and we’re certainly not looking through rose-tinted glasses. We know all her weaknesses, all too well. And, naturally, we’ve found a way around each one. But we understand that you don’t have the time or inclination to hack your presentation software until it does everything you need it to. 

And if what you need it to do is crazy, nauseating menus, we can see why you might lean towards  Prezi  as your preferred presentation program. 

But before you make your final choice, give us just a few moments of your time. It seems as though Microsoft has been listening to your Prezi praising. Sort of. Enter Zoom: PowerPoint’s quick menu-making magic wand. 

Before we begin, we need to preface this article by saying this:

“We never use the Zoom feature.” Buffalo 7

However, if you don’t have a lot of time on your hands and you need to have the option to move around your presentation freely, Zoom might be the answer to your prayers.

What is Zoom?

The name is confusing in this modern world where a pandemic has changed every aspect of our lives and one of the innovations keeping the earth turning is also called  Zoom . But we’re not talking about the  VC software now . 

Originally launched in 2016, the Zoom feature in PowerPoint allows you to present your slides in any order you want. PowerPoint presentations have traditionally followed a strict linear format. They start at the start, end at the end and should you have cause to jump back to an earlier slide, well, your audience is just gonna have to wait while you cycle through them.

Not anymore. With just a couple of click, PowerPoint will create a menu slide and all the hyperlinks for you, giving you the freedom to move around your slides in whatever order you, or your audience, want.

Why use Zoom?

Interactivity can be the difference between an okay presentation and a next-level one. Interactivity puts your audience at the heart of your story, hands the reins over to them, and builds trust between viewer and speaker. It breaks down imaginary walls between those on the stage and those off it. Walls are never a good thing if you’re trying to build relationships.

By implementing a menu system in PowerPoint, you can let your audience choose where they want to go next and, in just one click, you’ll be able to get to the slide that supports the conversation. While menu systems have always been possible in PowerPoint, before Zoom they required a lot of manual labour, duplicated slides, invisible triggers, and hyperlinks up the wazoo. Now PowerPoint does all the heavy lifting for you.

What do each of the Zoom features do?

Zoom options can be found in your top ribbon, by clicking the  Insert  drop down. The keen-eyed amongst you will see there are three different types of Zoom. Let’s take a look at each one.

Zoom types in PowerPoint

How to use Summary Zoom in PowerPoint

Think of Summary Zoom as a master menu. Once you’ve built your presentation, simply click  Insert > Zoom > Summary   Zoom  to open the dialogue box. You select which slides you want to be able to jump to, and PowerPoint will not only create the links, but the menu slide as well. PowerPoint will automatically put your menu slide to the front, but you can move it to wherever you want it to sit within  your narrative , without worrying about breaking the links.

Summary Zoom in PowerPoint

You’ll also see that PowerPoint creates sections in the thumbnail slide view down the left-hand column of your window, based on which slides you choose. More on this later, but if you want to get super organised, it could be a good idea to rename these to reflect the section content.

In Slide Show mode, click the slide image within your menu that represents the slide you want to move to, and, like magic, you’ll end up there. If only life was that simple. Once you reach the end of the section, another click will see you navigate right back to your main menu. 

If you need to edit your menu at any time, select  Zoom > Format > Edit Summary . Here you can update the sections that feature on your summary page. When you’re done, select  Update  and that’s a wrap.

How to use Section Zoom in PowerPoint

Like the chapters in a book, a lengthy or complex presentation can be divided into sections. This makes it easier for your audience to follow along and gives you the opportunity to ask them which solution they’d like to see first. Whether it’s to revisit a section or skip one altogether, Section Zoom removes the need for embarrassing, unprofessional, and seemingly-endless scrolling. 

For Section Zoom to work, you will need to section off your slides first. You can do this by clicking the first slide in the section in the slide thumbnail view of your PowerPoint window. Then, under the  Home  tab, click  Section and  Add Section . 

Once you’ve got your sections in order, select  Insert > Zoom , click on  Section Zoom , make your navigation choices, and hit  Insert . It’s that simple.

Section Zoom in PowerPoint

At this point you might be thinking, if PowerPoint creates sections after you’ve chosen your navigable slides in Summary Zoom, why would I bother making sections to be able to use Section Zoom? It’s a good question, and one we don’t know the answer to either. We did start this blog by saying she’s not perfect. 

How to use Slide Zoom in PowerPoint

Slide Zoom gives you the option to navigate to any slide you like, from any slide. Instead of creating a separate main menu slide to house your navigation buttons, Slide Zoom adds the button to your chosen slide.

This is a great way to hide excess information that doesn’t need to form part of your main presentation, but that one particularly pernickety audience member may challenge you on. In just one click you can navigate to a deep dive slide and leave them reeling that you could be so prepared.

As before, you simply choose which slide you want to navigate from, then  Insert > Zoom > Slide  Zoom and choose the slide you want to navigate to.

Inserting Slide Zoom in PPT

Zoom really is super easy to use. But is it worth it?

Design matters

One of the reasons we don’t use the Zoom function is because we’re damn fussy about design. We don’t want to compromise; we want to have beautiful presentations that also have intricate menu systems and interactive elements. There are very limited ways to customise your Zoom menus in PowerPoint. You can move them around a bit, change the size, add an ugly border and mess with the transition effects. But that sort of limitation just doesn’t fly around here.

That being said, you can change the button image by right-clicking and choosing  Change Image.  For all other customisation options, click the button in edit mode and you’ll see  Zoom Tools  in your ribbon, if you’re on a Mac, and  Zoom Styles  if you’re on a PC.

Zoom Background in PowerPoint

To help with the lack of design options available, Zoom Background makes your buttons transparent, so your beautiful slide design can shine. Just make sure you remember where the trigger is. We find it works to place the invisible button over a design element, such as your company logo, so it looks as though you’re clicking on that to trigger the navigation. You’ll find Zoom Background in the  Zoom Tools/Styles  tab. 

We can see why Microsoft felt the need to introduce Zoom. After 7 years of hearing about how ‘cool’ Prezi’s menus were, they probably caved just to shut people up. But, unless you don’t know the first thing about creating hyperlinks, or you promised your boss an interactive PowerPoint and you only remembered at the very last minute, we can’t see many reasons why you’d want to use Zoom. 

At Buffalo 7, we’re proud of the work we create. We pour innovation and passion and creativity into every deck, and we sure as hell never cut corners. If something’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right. Why not get in touch today and talk about a fully-interactive, navigable deck that won’t make your audience sea sick?

Here are just a few examples of our carefully-crafted menu systems in action. None of which were created with Zoom.

How To Zoom In On An Image In PowerPoint

In today’s digital age, captivating your audience during a PowerPoint presentation is essential.

This tutorial by Oregon-based teacher Regina Griffin will teach you how to seamlessly zoom in on an image within your PowerPoint slides.

Key Takeaways:

Why is zooming in on images important in powerpoint presentations.

Zooming in on images is crucial in PowerPoint presentations as it allows presenters to highlight specific details and emphasize key points effectively.

By strategically zooming in on images, presenters can draw the audience’s attention to intricate aspects that might otherwise go unnoticed. This deliberate focus not only enhances audience engagement but also aids in maintaining their interest throughout the presentation.

Zooming contributes to the overall clarity of the content, ensuring that complex visuals are comprehended with ease. This feature acts as a powerful tool for visual communication, enabling presenters to convey their message with precision and impact.

Emphasize Key Points

Improve visibility.

Another advantage of zooming in on images in PowerPoint is to improve visibility, ensuring that important details are clear and easily seen by the audience.

Add Visual Interest

Zooming in on images can also add visual interest to PowerPoint presentations by creating dynamic visual effects and enhancing the overall aesthetics of the slides.

By applying zoom to specific elements within a slide, such as charts, graphics, or text, you can introduce interactive features that encourage audience engagement. This interactive zoom functionality allows viewers to focus on key details and emphasizes important information effectively.

How to Zoom in on Images in PowerPoint

To zoom in on images in PowerPoint, follow these steps to enhance the visual impact of your presentation.

Step 1: Insert an Image

When selecting images for your presentation, opt for high-resolution visuals that are relevant to your content and enhance your message. Quality images are key to capturing your audience’s attention. Placing images strategically can make your slides visually appealing; consider using the Rule of Thirds to create a balanced composition. You can use the ‘Send to Back’ or ‘Bring to Front’ options to adjust the layering of your images, allowing you to stack multiple visuals for more dynamic presentations.

Step 2: Select the Image

Step 3: navigate to the ‘format’ tab.

Next, navigate to the ‘Format’ tab in PowerPoint to access the formatting options that will allow you to apply zoom effects to the selected image.

Once you are in the ‘Format’ tab, you will encounter a plethora of formatting tools at your disposal. These tools enable you to adjust various image properties such as size, color, borders, and more. To enhance the visual effects of your images, you can make use of the shape formats provided in the tab. Utilize options like shadows, reflections, and 3D rotations to add depth and dimension to your images. The ‘Format’ tab offers precise control over zoom settings, allowing you to zoom in or out to highlight specific details within the image.

Step 4: Click on the ‘Zoom’ Option

Upon clicking the ‘Zoom’ option, a dialog box will appear, presenting various zoom percentage options for you to select. By adjusting the percentage, you can control the level of magnification, ensuring the image’s details are highlighted effectively.

Step 5: Adjust the Zoom Level

Once the zoom feature is activated, adjust the zoom level by either increasing or decreasing the magnification to achieve the desired visual impact within your presentation.

Regarding fine-tuning the zoom level settings in PowerPoint, it’s crucial to strike a balance between enhancing the details of your images and maintaining overall clarity. For intricate diagrams or charts, a higher zoom level might be necessary to ensure that every element is visible to your audience.

Step 6: Use the Hand Tool to Move the Zoomed Image

Utilize the Hand Tool after zooming in on the image to move and reposition the enlarged view within the slide, allowing you to focus on specific details effectively.

The Hand Tool in PowerPoint serves as a versatile feature that enables users to smoothly pan across the zoomed-in image, aiding in precise placement and careful attention to specific elements. By simply clicking and dragging, you can navigate through the enlarged image with ease. This functionality proves invaluable when presenting intricate visuals or complex diagrams, ensuring that your audience can follow along seamlessly.

Tips and Tricks for Zooming in on Images in PowerPoint

One powerful technique to enhance image zooming in PowerPoint is to use zoom animations strategically. By applying zoom animations, you can create a dynamic and engaging visual experience for your audience, drawing attention to key elements within your images. Consider adding borders or shadows around zoomed images to make them stand out more effectively. This simple adjustment can give your images a polished look and make them more visually appealing.

Use the ‘Zoom In’ Animation Effect

Engage your audience with the ‘Zoom In’ animation effect in PowerPoint, which adds a dynamic and visually appealing zoom transition to your images.

Adding the ‘Zoom In’ animation not only brings energy and focus to specific parts of your visual content but also helps in guiding your audience’s attention effectively. For instance, when showcasing detailed diagrams or emphasizing key elements in graphs, applying the ‘Zoom In’ effect creates a more immersive experience. It’s particularly useful in educational presentations to highlight important information. By gradually zooming into crucial details, this animation keeps the audience engaged and enhances the overall impact of your message.

Add a Border or Shadow to the Zoomed Image

Use the ‘zoom to full screen’ option for maximum impact.

For a dramatic visual effect, consider using the ‘Zoom to Full Screen’ option in PowerPoint to expand the image to fullscreen for a stunning impact on your audience.

Mastering the art of zooming in on images in PowerPoint can significantly enhance the visual appeal and effectiveness of your presentations, providing you with a powerful tool to captivate and inform your audience.

Today's NYT Connections Hints and Answer for July 10 (#395)

My favorite part of proton docs is what it can't do, what is a webm file, quick links, grant access to share screens in zoom, screen share a powerpoint presentation in zoom.

No matter where you work, meetings all have one thing in common: PowerPoint presentations. If you use Zoom, you can easily present your slideshow to the participants by sharing your screen . Here's how it's done.

If you're the host of the Zoom meeting , you'll be able to share your screen without issue. However, if you're joining a meeting that you aren't the host of, you may need to request permission from the host to be able to share your screen.

As a general rule, we recommend that hosts disable the screen-share feature for participants by default for security reasons . If you aren't the host of the meeting, be sure to reach out to the host in advance to request permission to share your screen during the Zoom call. Hosts can always enable the feature during the call, but it's always good to be a step ahead.

If you're the host of the meeting and someone is requesting permission to share their screen during the meeting, click the up arrow next to "Share Screen" at the bottom of the window.

Up arrow next to share screen button

In the menu that appears, click "Advanced Sharing Options."

Advanced sharing options button

The "Advanced Sharing Options" window will appear. In the "Who Can Share" section, click the bubble next to "All Participants."

All participants option

All participants in the meeting can now share their screen.

To screen share your PowerPoint presentation, go ahead and open the PowerPoint presentation that you would like to present. However, before you put the presentation in Slide Show view, you'll want to share your screen. At the bottom of the Zoom meeting window, click "Share Screen."

Share screen button

If you're using a single monitor, you will immediately start sharing your screen. If you're using dual monitors , you'll need to click the screen that your presentation will be shared on. In our case, that will be "Screen 2."

Screen select window

To begin sharing that screen, click "Share" at the bottom-right corner of the screen select window.

Share button

You're now sharing your screen. Now, in Microsoft PowerPoint, select the "Slide Show View" icon in the bottom-right corner of the application.

Presentation view icon

From here, deliver your presentation as though you were standing in front of a live audience.

If you are giving a big presentation through Zoom, you're not going to just jump straight into it. You may need to speak to the audience a bit before sharing your screen. If so, here are a few tips on how to look better on your Zoom call .

Preparing to present PowerPoint slides in Zoom for the first time can feel overwhelming. It's a different experience than face-to-face presentations, and naturally, you want to get it right. But don't worry, we've all been there, and we're here to help.

In this article, we’ll guide you through the process step-by-step, so you can deliver your presentation with confidence and avoid awkward pitfalls. Let’s dive in.

Present PowerPoint Slides in Zoom by Sharing Your Entire Screen

One of the easiest ways to share your PowerPoint slide deck is by sharing your entire screen. Here’s how to go about it.

  • Open your PowerPoint presentation.
  • Start or Join a Zoom meeting . Knowing how to use Zoom like an expert makes this step easy.

Click share screen on Zoom

When you hide the toolbar, it may appear as a minimized window in your taskbar. Click the window icon to reveal it when you’re ready to stop sharing.

Launch slideshow from beginning or current slide in PowerPoint

  • Press the Esc key on your keyboard to exit the slideshow after your presentation.
  • Click Stop sharing .

Sharing your entire screen lets you seamlessly switch between your PowerPoint window and other windows while bringing your audience along. However, it has a downside—your audience will see sensitive details or notifications if they pop up.

Present PowerPoint Slides in Zoom by Sharing a Window

With this method, you share only your PowerPoint window, so your audience won't see other areas of your desktop, including popup notifications. Here’s how to get it done.

Set up slideshow in PowerPoint

  • Join the Zoom meeting.

Click share screen in Zoom

Ensure your PowerPoint window is maximized and running in the background, or it won't appear under the Window tab.

Select PowerPoint window and click Share

  • Click Stop sharing or Stop share when you’re done presenting.

This method is perfect for multi-tasking—that is, sharing your PowerPoint window while viewing your notes (in a separate document) or seeing what’s happening in Zoom.

Rock Your PowerPoint Presentation in Zoom Like a Pro

And that's a wrap! You now know all the key steps to present PowerPoint slides effectively in Zoom. Remember, you have two main options: share your entire screen when you need to switch between different windows during the presentation or share a specific PowerPoint window if you're multitasking and want to keep the rest of your desktop private.

Practice using these features before your next presentation, so you're comfortable and ready. Alongside this, using a whiteboard in Zoom can make your presentations more interesting.

How to Make a “Good” Presentation “Great”

  • Guy Kawasaki

how to zoom in during a powerpoint presentation

Remember: Less is more.

A strong presentation is so much more than information pasted onto a series of slides with fancy backgrounds. Whether you’re pitching an idea, reporting market research, or sharing something else, a great presentation can give you a competitive advantage, and be a powerful tool when aiming to persuade, educate, or inspire others. Here are some unique elements that make a presentation stand out.

  • Fonts: Sans Serif fonts such as Helvetica or Arial are preferred for their clean lines, which make them easy to digest at various sizes and distances. Limit the number of font styles to two: one for headings and another for body text, to avoid visual confusion or distractions.
  • Colors: Colors can evoke emotions and highlight critical points, but their overuse can lead to a cluttered and confusing presentation. A limited palette of two to three main colors, complemented by a simple background, can help you draw attention to key elements without overwhelming the audience.
  • Pictures: Pictures can communicate complex ideas quickly and memorably but choosing the right images is key. Images or pictures should be big (perhaps 20-25% of the page), bold, and have a clear purpose that complements the slide’s text.
  • Layout: Don’t overcrowd your slides with too much information. When in doubt, adhere to the principle of simplicity, and aim for a clean and uncluttered layout with plenty of white space around text and images. Think phrases and bullets, not sentences.

As an intern or early career professional, chances are that you’ll be tasked with making or giving a presentation in the near future. Whether you’re pitching an idea, reporting market research, or sharing something else, a great presentation can give you a competitive advantage, and be a powerful tool when aiming to persuade, educate, or inspire others.

How many slides does your presentation need?

When you’re creating a presentation, it’s important to consider the amount of information you’re sharing with your audience. You don’t want to overwhelm them, but you also want to be comprehensive and ensure that you’re covering all your bases. Whether you’re giving a 10, 15, or 30-minute presentation, see how many slides your presentation needs to get your point across.

Rules and guidance for PowerPoint presentations

PowerPoint is a powerful visual aid for introducing data, statistics, and new concepts to any audience. In PowerPoint, you can create as many slides as you want—which might sound tempting at first. But length doesn’t always guarantee a successful presentation . Most presentations last around 10-15 minutes, and anything longer than that (such as a 30-minute presentation) may have additional visual aids or speakers to enhance your message.

A handy rule to keep in mind is to spend about 1-2 minutes on each slide. This will give you ample time to convey your message, let data sink in, and allow you to memorize your presentation . When you limit each slide to this length of time, you also need to be selective about how much information you put on each slide and avoid overloading your audience.

For 10-minute presentations

Ten minutes is usually considered the shortest amount of time you need for a successful presentation. For a shorter 10-minute presentation, you’ll need to be selective with your content. Limit your slide count to approximately 7 to 10 slides.

For 15-minute presentations

When preparing for a 15-minute presentation, concise and focused content is key. Aim for around 10 to 15 slides to maintain a good pace, which will fit with the 1-2 minute per slide rule.

For 30-minute presentations

A longer presentation gives you more room to delve deeper into your topic. But to maintain audience engagement, you’ll need to add interactivity , audience participation, and elements like animations . Aim for around 20 to 30 slides, allowing for a balanced distribution of content without overwhelming your audience.

Using the 10-20-30 rule

The 10-20-30 rule is an effective way to structure your presentation. It calls for no more than 10 slides and no longer than 20 minutes (as well as a 30-point font).

Tips for crafting an effective presentation

No matter how long a presentation is, there are guidelines for crafting one to enhance understanding and retention. Keep these tips in mind when creating your PowerPoint masterpiece:

  • Avoid overload: Ensure that each slide communicates a single idea clearly, avoiding cluttered layouts or excessive text.
  • Pay attention to structure: Think of slides as bullet points with introductions, endings, and deep dives within each subject.
  • Add visual appeal: Incorporate images, charts, and graphics to convey information without using too many words to make your audience read.
  • Engage with your audience: Encourage interaction through questions, polls, or storytelling techniques to keep your audience actively involved.
  • Put in the practice: Familiarize yourself with your slides and practice your delivery to refine your timing and confidence.

Ultimately, the ideal number of slides for your presentation depends on the allocated time frame and how detailed your content is. By striking a balance between informative content and engaging delivery, you can create a compelling presentation that can teach your audience something new.
