How To Name Individual Slides In Google Slides

Google Slides is an excellent tool for creating presentations. One of the features that make this tool so user-friendly is the ability to name individual slides. This feature is especially helpful when you have a large presentation, and you need to quickly identify specific slides when organizing your presentation. In this blog post, we will guide you on how to name individual slides in Google Slides.

Steps to Name Individual Slides in Google Slides

Step 1: Open your Google Slides presentation

To name a slide, you first need to have your Google Slides presentation open. Head over to the Google Slides website and open the presentation you want to rename slides in.

Step 2: Select the slide you want to name

On the left side of the screen, you’ll see a sidebar with thumbnails of all your slides. Click on the slide you want to name. It will be highlighted to show it’s selected.

Step 3: Add a slide title

To name a slide, you will need to use the Slide Title feature. The slide title acts as the name of the slide. For Google Slides, click on the “Untitled Slide” at the top and type in the name you want for the slide.


Unlike some other presentation software, Google Slides does not currently allow users to rename slides in the slide sorter view directly. The title of the slide in slide sorter view and in the presentation itself is taken from the title text box on the slide. However, you can add notes to each slide as a form of identification, and these notes will not appear in your final presentation.

Step 4: Rinse and Repeat

Simply repeat the process for each slide you need to name. Remember, giving your slides meaningful names can help immensely when it comes to organizing and navigating your presentation.


Naming your slides in Google Slides is a simple yet effective way to keep your presentation organized, especially when dealing with larger presentations. The ability to quickly identify each slide can save you time and make the process of putting together your presentation more efficient.
