The order of the slides in a presentation is crucial to ensuring that your information is presented in the manner that you require. Adding slides is as simple as clicking the + button in the toolbar in Google Slides, but it’s very easy to accidentally add a new slide after the slide you are currently editing, rather than at the end of the slideshow.
You may have already found that you can simply click on a slide and drag it to the desired location, but this can be tedious if the slide is added near the beginning of the presentation and needs to go at the end of it. Fortunately there is an option in Google Slides that lets you quickly move the current slide to the end of the presentation.
