How to Add Clickable Buttons in a PowerPoint


You can add an element of interactivity to your Microsoft PowerPoint presentations by adding clickable buttons, also known as hyperlinked buttons, to one or more of your slides. A clickable button can load an external Web site for a viewer to learn more about a given topic, or you can use it while presenting to navigate to a different slide within the same presentation. You can turn any shape into a hyperlinked button.

  • Open a new or existing presentation in PowerPoint.

  • Go to the slide on which you want to place a clickable button.

  • Click the "Insert" tab.

  • Click "Shapes". Select your desired button shape, such as a circle or a rectangle with rounded corners.

  • Click once anywhere on your slide to insert the shape. Drag the corners of the shape to increase or change its size.

  • Click the "Hyperlink" button.

  • Type the URL of the website you want the link to load in the "Address" bar if you want to link to a Web page. Navigate to and click on the file you want to load if you want to link to a file on your computer. Click "Place in This Document" and click on a slide if you want to link to another slide in the same presentation.

  • Click "OK". You now have a clickable button in your presentation.

Tips & Warnings

  • Hold down "Shift" and drag one of the corners of the shape to maintain its proportions.
  • Right-click on the shape and choose "Edit Hyperlink" to modify the hyperlink location.
