Transitions and animations are relatively minor changes to a Powerpoint slideshow that can help to increase the entertainment level of the presentation. Powerpoint 2013 makes it a short process to add one of these effects to a slide, which can help to increase your audience’s focus on your information.
But it is very simple to go overboard with these effects, almost to the point of distraction. If you notice this yourself, or receive feedback indicating that your effects might need to be toned down, then you will need to remove some of them. Our guide below will show you how to remove an existing transition from a slide in Powerpoint 2013.
