How To Stop Google Slides From Jumping

Are you having a hard time with your Google Slides presentations because they seem to jump or skip slides at random? This can be very frustrating when you’re trying to present a professional and smooth presentation. Luckily, there are few workarounds to stop this from happening.

Check for Duplicate Slides

The first thing you should do is double-check your presentation and ensure that you do not have any duplicate slides. Sometimes, when we are working on large presentations, it’s easy to inadvertently duplicate a slide – and that can cause the presentation to appear as if it’s jumping.

Turn Off Auto-Advance Slides

Google Slides comes with a feature called Auto-Advance Slides that can cause your slides to jump if it’s turned on. To turn this off, you need to go into your presentation settings.

Follow these steps:

  1. Open your presentation on Google Slides.
  2. Click on the File menu.
  3. Select Publish to the web.
  4. In the new window, click on the Auto-advance slides drop-down.
  5. Select Off.
  6. Click Start publishing.

Run a Bug Check

If your Google Slides are still jumping after trying the steps above, it may be due to a bug or issue with the Google Slides software itself. It’s worth checking out Google’s Product Forums or reaching out to their support team to see if this is a known issue and if there are any solutions.


Google Slides is a powerful tool for creating presentations, but like any software, it can have its quirks. If your slides are jumping, it can break the flow of your presentation and even lead to confusion for your audience. By implementing the steps we’ve outlined in this blog post, you should be able to stop this issue and enjoy a smoother, more professional presentation experience.
