Ways to Loop a PowerPoint

PowerPoint presentations are often used in conference kiosks, convention booths and at other marketing events. Looping a presentation ensures that it continues playing, beginning to end, automatically. This is particularly useful for companies that need to set up a slideshow to run without assistance.

Some use cases include:

  • Product display
  • General announcements
  • Informational kiosk
  • Location map

Read on to learn how to loop a PowerPoint presentation on a PC and a Mac.

PC Office 2010, 2013, 2016

To loop a PowerPoint presentation so that it plays continuously, do the following:

1.     Click on the Slide Show tab.

Preview of PowerPoint Slide

2.     Click Set Up Slide Show. A window with options will pop up.

Preview of Slide Show Tab

3.     Click Loop continuously until 'Esc'

Preview after clicking Set Up Slide Show

Note: If you want the speaker/individual to maintain control over the presentation, clicking between slides, choose the Presented by a speaker or Browsed by an individual option under Show Type. Clicking Browsed at a kiosk automatically checks the Loop continuously until 'Esc' box.

Mac Office 2016 & 2011

To create a loop on a PowerPoint presentation, do the following:

  • Click on the Slide Show tab.
  • Click Set Up Slide Show.
  • Under Show type, pick one of the following:
    • To loop the slideshow but allow users to maintain control over advancing the slides, select Browsed by an individual.
    • To loop the slide show until the Esc button is pressed, select Browsed at a kiosk.
