If you want to use the same slide twice without manually creating it from scratch or redesign the template, you can just create a duplicate slide. Here’s how to duplicate a slide in PowerPoint.
PowerPoint allows you to duplicate a slide or more but just copying or pasting. But for new users, this easy task isn’t easy at all.
You can do this on PowerPoint 2013, PowerPoint 2016, and PowerPoint 2019 — earlier version like PowerPoint 2010 may need to use a different approach.
How to Duplicate a Slide in PowerPoint
The first method you want to use to duplicate a slide in PowerPoint is by just using the “Duplicate Slide” feature in the context menu.
Open the PowerPoint presentation. Right-click the slide you want to duplicate, then click Duplicate Slide to create a copy of it placed right after the original one.
Now the duplicated slide is placed after the original.
You can also move the duplicated slide by dragging and dropping it.
Copy the Slide and Paste It
You can also copy the slide and paste it somewhere else if you don’t want to create a duplicate slide placed right after the original one. Simply right-click the slide, then click Copy.
Now at the slide you want to paste, right-click it.
Then, choose the Paste Options: Use Destination Theme (H). It will paste the slide without replacing the one you’re right-clicking at.
Microsoft PowerPoint has a nice and easy feature that you can use to duplicate a slide. You can create a duplicate by using the two methods above.
