Buttons and Hyperlinks in PowerPoint Some things to keep in mind: If you hyperlink to another PowerPoint project, you will need to go to the end of it before you are returned to your original location. Of course, you can add buttons to the other PowerPoint that take you back on each slide. If you change the file locations of your PowerPoint Projects, there is a strong possibility that the hyperlink will no longer work. Make sure you test out your buttons after making changes.
