Office solution: A quick way to rearrange PowerPoint slides

This week, learn the solution to last week's PowerPoint challenge: help this user quickly rearrange slides in a PowerPoint presentation.

Last week, I asked you to help a user rearrange slides. You can do so in the Slide tab. Just click and drag a slide from one position to another. Unfortunately, this user just couldn't get the hang of working in the Slide tab and that's understandable. It's difficult to know when to stop and most of the slides aren't even visible, most of the time. It's hard to keep things in perspective.

Rudi-S suggested the same solution I had in mind: Slide Sorter view. To get there quickly, just click Slide Sorter in the bottom-right corner. This view provides a much better canvass on which to rearrange slides.
