Hyperlinks in PowerPoint work the same way that they work on websites. A link can point to another slide in the presentation, an email address, a file or an external website. If you've created a link to a website in your presentation, make sure your computer is connected to the Internet before you try to open it. Make hyperlinks with the Hyperlink button when you create the presentation.
