How to Insert a Web Page in PowerPoint


Adding a Web page to your PowerPoint presentation may add creativity or help convey an idea or process more clearly. You can add hyperlinks in PowerPoint that allow users to click the links and open Web pages, but PowerPoint doesn't allow users to put an active Web page on a slide. You can download an add-in called "LiveWeb" to put a Web page directly onto a slide if you want to add more than just a hyperlink.

Add Hyperlink

  • Open PowerPoint and the presentation to which you want to add a hyperlink.

  • Click to select the text or object where you want to create the hyperlink.

  • Go to "Insert" and click "Hyperlink" from the "Links" group.

  • Click "Existing File or Web Page" under "Link to" and select "Browse the Web."

  • Click to select the page you want to link to and click "OK."

LiveWeb Add-in

  • Download LiveWeb from the LiveWeb website. Save it to a location on your computer.

  • Open PowerPoint and go to "File," then "Options" and select "Add-ins."

  • Click the "Manage" menu and choose "PowerPoint Add-ins," then click "Go."

  • Click "Add New" in the Add-ins window.

  • Navigate to where you saved the LiveWeb add-in and select the folder. If you get a warning message that the add-in may contain a macro, click "Enable Macro."

Insert Web Page

  • Open PowerPoint and go to the slide where you want to insert a Web page.

  • Click the "Insert" tab in the ribbon at the top and then click "Web Page" under "LiveWeb."

  • Type in the Web address you are using and click "Next." Select "Yes, refresh web page automatically (real-time update)" if you want the Web page to stay updated in your presentation. Click "Next" again.

  • Enter the percentage amount of the slide you want the Web page to cover, then select the location where you want the Web page to appear on the slide and click "Next."

  • Check the box next to "Run show after inserting the web page" and then "Finish" if you want to preview the presentation with the addition of the Web page. If you don't want to preview the presentation at that point, don't check the box and just select "Finish."
