How To Download One Slide From Google Slides As Pdf

Google Slides is an incredibly useful tool for creating presentations. At times, you may only need to share or print one particular slide as a standalone document. In this guide, we will walk you through the process of downloading a single slide from your Google Slides presentation as a PDF document.

Step 1: Open your Google Slides presentation

First, ensure that the presentation you want to extract the slide from is open. Log into your Google account, navigate to Google Drive, and open your selected Slides presentation.

Step 2: Select the Slide

Scroll through your presentation until you find the slide you wish to save as a PDF. Click on it to select it.

Step 3: Create a New Presentation

Now, we will create a new Google Slides presentation. This is where we will move the selected slide to. Navigate to the “File” dropdown menu in your Google Slides toolbar, select “New,” and then click “Presentation.”

Step 4: Move your Slide

Go back to your original presentation and select the slide you wish to export. You can do this by clicking on the slide in the left-hand column. Then, copy the slide by right-clicking and selecting “Copy,” or by simply using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+C (or Command+C on a Mac).

Now, navigate to your new presentation. Paste the copied slide by right-clicking and selecting “Paste,” or by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+V (or Command+V on a Mac).

Step 5: Download as PDF

With your single slide in the new presentation, navigate to the “File” dropdown menu in the Google Slides toolbar. Select “Download,” then click on “PDF Document.”

Your slide will now be downloaded as a PDF file!

Remember, this method is helpful when you only need to export one or a few slides. If you need to save your entire presentation as a PDF, you can simply go to “File” > “Download” > “PDF Document.”


Extracting a single slide from Google Slides and saving it as a PDF is straightforward. This guide has shown you how to do it in just five steps. Happy presenting!
