When you create a custom show in PowerPoint, you can adapt a presentation for different audiences. Use a custom show to present only certain slides from your presentation, or to create a hyperlink to a group of slides in your presentation.

There are two kinds of custom shows: basic and hyperlinked. A basic custom show is a separate presentation or a presentation that includes some of the slides of the original.

A hyperlinked custom show is a quick way to navigate to one or more separate presentations. Basic custom showsUse a basic custom show to present a subset of the slides in a presentation file.

For example, if your presentation contains a total of five slides, a custom show named "Site 1" could contain just slides 1, 3, and 5. A second custom show named "Site 2" could include slides 1, 2, 4, and 5.

When you create a custom show from a presentation, you can always run the whole presentation in its original sequential order, too. 1 Slides for Site 12 Slides for Site 2Hyperlinked custom showsUse a hyperlinked custom show to organize content in a presentation.

For instance, if you create a primary custom show about your company's new overall organization, you can then create a custom show for each department within the organization and link to these shows from the primary presentation. You can also use a hyperlinked custom show to create a table of contents slide.

A table of contents slide lets you navigate to different sections of your presentation so that you can choose which sections to show to your audience at a particular time. 1 Slide with hyperlinks3 Custom show for Department BCreate a custom show and present it
