How to Stop PowerPoint Slides From Looping Automatically
Automatic timers in PowerPoint are useful if you don't want to manually advance a presentation. (Hemera Technologies/ Images)

When you create a PowerPoint presentation, you can set the slides to transition manually by a mouse click or automatically using a timer. If you have a large amount of slides in your presentation with auto transitions, it can be cumbersome to navigate through the menus and change the animations for each slide. You can turn off the animations for every slide at the same time through a simple menu change.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click the "Slide Show" tab.

  2. 2

    Click "Set up Slide Show."

  3. 3

    Click on the "Manually" radio button under "Advance Slides."

  4. 4

    Click "OK."

Tips and warnings

  • Your slides may also be playing on an automatic loop. When you're in the "Set up Slide show" text box, uncheck the "Loop Continuously" check box.
