How To Stop Powerpoint From Scrolling To Next Slide

Are you tired of your PowerPoint presentation automatically scrolling to the next slide before you’re ready? It can be a real hassle, especially when you’re in the middle of a presentation and suddenly, the slide changes without your command. But don’t worry, because in this blog post, we will guide you on how to stop PowerPoint from scrolling to the next slide.

The Solution

The solution is pretty straightforward. All you need to do is adjust the PowerPoint settings. Here are the steps on how to do it:

Step 1:

Open your PowerPoint presentation and click on the “Slide Show” tab from the menu at the top.

Step 2:

In the “Set Up” group, click on the “Set Up Slide Show” button.

Step 3:

In the dialog box that appears, you will see an option for “Advance slides”. By default, this is set to “Automatically After”, which is why your slides are automatically advancing.

Step 4:

To stop this, you need to select the option for “On Mouse Click”. This will ensure that your slides will only advance when you click the mouse.

Step 5:

Once you’ve made this change, click on the “OK” button to close the dialog box.

That’s it! Now your PowerPoint presentation will only advance slides when you manually click the mouse.


By following these simple steps, you can easily stop PowerPoint from automatically scrolling to the next slide. Now, you can control the flow of your presentation without any unexpected interruptions. Happy presenting!
