Microsoft PowerPoint is a software program used to create slides that are displayed on a TV or projected onto a screen and are used as a visual aid during presentations. One of its features is the ability to use a computer programming language known as Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) within these slides. VBA is used to perform automated tasks in a slide, such opening a program or initiating an animated element at preset times during the presentation. Individually deleting multiple slides containing VBA elements is a tedious process, but with the right keyboard shortcuts, you can delete them all simultaneously.

Double-click the Microsoft PowerPoint icon on your computer's desktop to launch the program.

Click the Office button in the top left-hand corner of the screen, indicated by a circle containing four squares. This will open a drop-down menu.

Click "Open" in the drop-down menu to list the available PowerPoint presentations you may edit.

Double-click the name of the PowerPoint presentation from which you wish to delete multiple VBA slides.

Press and hold the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard, and select the slides you wish to delete by clicking their thumbnail preview images, located on the left side of the screen.

Press the "Delete" key on your keyboard to delete the selected slides from your PowerPoint presentation.
