How to loop a PowerPoint presentation

How to Blur an Image in PowerPoint

Slide shows are sometimes common show photos at events such as weddings or trade shows. Whatever the occasion, you’ll want to repeat your PowerPoint presentation so your guests don’t look at a blank screen. That’s how you do it.

Set the slide show to repeat

First, open the PowerPoint presentation you want to browse. Once open, go to the «Setup» group on the «Slideshow» tab and then select the «Slideshow Setup» button.

The «Display Setup» window will appear. In the «Show options» group, check the box next to «Repeat continuously to Esc». Once selected, click «OK» in the lower right corner of the window.

Now when you play the slide show, it will only end when you press the «Esc» key, instead of finishing the last slide.

One caveat: with the way we currently set it up, the slide show will only continue when someone clicks the mouse button. OK yes a speaker will be present always. Otherwise, you’ll need to set up automatic slide transitions.

Apply automatic slide transitions

Return to the «Set Up Show» window by selecting «Set Up Slideshow» in the «Set Up» group on the «Slideshow» tab.

There are a few options you need to select, but an important note is that you must first select «Use rhythms, if present» in the «Advanced Slides» group.

The next option we select will lock a few things in place (so you must first select «Use timers, if any»).

In the «Show Type» group, select «Kiosk Browsed (Full Screen)». The «Scroll to Esc» option will be enabled automatically if you haven’t already enabled it, and the option you selected in «Advanced Slides» will remain unchanged.

Select «OK» when you are ready to continue.

Without the «Kiosk Browsed» option enabled, automatic slide progress would be disabled if someone pressed the Back key. When activated, the Forward and Back keys are locked, allowing the slide show to advance automatically unattended, without fear of someone breaking it.

Now it’s time to set the slide timers. Go to the «Transitions» tab. In the «Time» group, check the box next to «After» and set the time you want each slide to progress. Note that it doesn’t matter if the box next to «Mouse click» is checked or not, it won’t work.

Then select the «Apply to all» option in the same group.

Now, when you play the slide show, it will run continuously without interruption. To exit the slide show, press the «Esc» button.
