    Your request might be done via Microsoft Web Browser content control.

    To add a Microsoft WebBrowser control to a slide, follow these steps:

    1. Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click PowerPoint Options.
    2. Click Popular, click the Show Developer tab in the Ribbon check box, and then  click OK.
    3. Locate the slide in which you want to insert the control.
    4. Click the Develop tab, and then click More Controls.
    5. Click Microsoft Web Browser, and then draw the control on your slide.

    Add the following code to this control:

    Sub go2URL ()
       Dim varURL as Variant
    
       varURL = "http://www.microsoft.com"
       Slide1.WebBrowser1.Navigate varURL
    End Sub

    It's recommended to download and install Configuration Analyzer Tool (OffCAT), which is developed by Microsoft Support teams. Once the tool is installed, you can run it at any time to scan for hundreds of known issues in Office programs.
