Microsoft PowerPoint is the perfect software to use for presentations. You can create as many slides as you need to act as visual aids and summaries of your key points. However, when you're creating the slides for your presentation you might lose track of how many you've completed. Conveniently, PowerPoint automatically counts the total number of slides you have created for a presentation. You can find the total number of slides using two different methods, both of which only take a few clicks.

Open the PowerPoint presentation and click on the "View" tab. Under this tab, find the "Master Views" group. The document should automatically be in "Normal View" at this point; if it isn't you need to select this from the group.
Scroll down the left-hand side of the screen, where you can see a thumbnail of each side. This panel shows the slides in order and, once you reach the last slide, its number will be the same as the total number of slides in the presentation.
Click on a slide in the right-hand panel in "Normal View." This is usually where you edit individual slides. Look at the PowerPoint bar at the bottom of the window. On the left-hand side, you will see a counter with two numbers, saying "Slide [number] of [number]." The last number is the total number of slides in the PowerPoint presentation.
