Melissa, of Phoenix asks, “I have a PowerPoint slide with lots of graphics. One of the graphics is behind another and I cannot select it to move the image. How can I select the graphic?”
This is an all too often problem with various software programs. However, users seem to add more graphics when it comes to PowerPoint. A simple solution is to use the Tab key to select objects in PowerPoint.
When on the slide you need, simply press the “Tab” key to move around the slide. Each time the “Tab” key is pressed, the next object is selected.
HINT: If nothing is selected, click into a blank space within the slide. Now you may begin selecting objects using the “Tab” key.
Once the hidden graphic is selected, use the mouse or the arrow keys to move the object to the correct placement.
This quick tip on how to use the tab key to select objects in PowerPoint can be very useful and can save a lot of time.
