How To Stop Google Slides From Scrolling

Have you ever experienced the frustration of your Google Slides presentation scrolling unintentionally? It can be a genuine nuisance, especially when you’re trying to deliver a killer presentation. Fortunately, there are ways to fix this!

In this blog post, we’re going to walk you through the simple steps necessary to prevent Google Slides from scrolling. It’s easy, fast, and requires little to no technical knowledge.

Disable the Mouse Scroll Function

The most common cause for slides scrolling unintentionally is the mouse scroll function. This happens when you unintentionally scroll the mouse wheel or touchpad while working on your presentation. Here’s how to disable it:

On Chrome, you can use an extension called “NoScroll”. You can download this from the Chrome Web Store. After installing, you will see the NoScroll icon on the extension bar of your browser. Simply click it and choose “Disable Scroll”.

Use Present Mode

Another effective way to stop your Google Slides from scrolling is by using Present mode. Present mode fixes the slide on your screen, preventing any unintentional scrolling. To enter Present mode, simply click on the “Present” button in the top-right corner of your Google Slides interface or press
Ctrl+Shift+F5 on your keyboard.

Use Full Screen Mode

Using full screen mode also stops Google Slides from scrolling. To enter full screen mode, click on the “View” option in your Google Slides interface and select “Full screen”. Alternatively, press
F11 on your keyboard.


Google Slides is a wonderful tool for creating presentations, but the scrolling issue can sometimes be a hassle. With these simple methods, you can gain control over your presentation and ensure a smooth and professional experience. Remember, it’s all about making the technical aspects work for you, not against you.
