Streamline your PowerPoint approval process by sending a single slide via email.

Creating a PowerPoint presentation can be a challenging, time-consuming, yet rewarding project. If you've ever created a large PowerPoint file and had to make changes to a single slide, you know how cumbersome it can be to mail the entire PPT file for approval. But you don't have to. A single slide can be copied from the larger presentation and sent by itself for quicker and error-free email delivery.

Open the PowerPoint presentation from which you want to copy a single slide.
