Deleting a slide in PowerPoint is a very simple process if you know how to do it. If you don't, you could end up fussing with the menus and getting frustrated because you can't directly choose the contents of a slide and delete it. That will simply remove the content and leave you with a blank slide, which doesn't really help. In addition, if you've already converted your presentation into a PDF for storage/archiving purposes, you'll need a tool to delete that page without affecting the other pages and content. This article shows you both actions - how to delete a slide in PowerPoint and how to delete a page in PDF with Wondershare PDFelement - PDF Editor so you're covered under either circumstance.

In PowerPoint 2007 and later, including PowerPoint for Office 365, the thumbnail pane can be used to delete one or more slides at a time. Usually visible by default when you're in Normal view mode, the thumbnail pane can be seen on the left side of the screen as a vertical row of slides.

  • Open the PPT.
  • Make sure the "Normal View" is turned on at the bottom of the PowerPoint window.

  • To remove sequential files, select them with your mouse while holding the Shift key; if they're not sequential, hold down the Ctrl key and click all relevant slides with your mouse in the thumbnail pane and then delete them as shown in the previous step.

  • Edit PDFs with advanced features to alter text, images, and other objects, including links, headers/footers, page backgrounds, etc.
  • Convert PDF files into nearly any other document format you want, which includes MS Office files, EPUB, HTML, and more.
  • Create fillable forms or convert non-fillable forms, fill them out, edit form content, extract form data, and do everything you need to on a form.
  • Protect your data and content with password encryption, redaction, and watermarks.
  • Sign your documents digitally to streamline PDF workflows across teams.
  • Perform OCR on image-based PDFs (scanned PDFs) and accurately convert them into documents that can be searched or edited.

One of the most complicated tasks when it comes to PDFs is page management. Unless you have the right tool, it's virtually impossible to delete a single page or a set of pages from a PDF document. PDFelement makes it super-simple by giving you several page view options so you can see the results as you delete pages.

  • Open the PDF file from which you want to delete a page.
  • Click on the "Page" menu item in the top toolbar.
  • Click the trash bin icon in the tool panel right below that.
  • In the "Delete Pages" window, choose the page, pages, or page range to be deleted.
  • Hit "OK" and save the new version of the file with the deleted pages gone.
