Working with Powerpoint slides that are inserted into Word 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to attach a single Powerpoint slide to a Word document that will allow the person who reads the document to click on the powerpoint slide and be able to edit the slide to fit their needs.  When I try to click on the inserted powerpoint now, it opens automatically in a slideshow.  

    I'm able to insert an Excel worksheet as an icon in my document and it opens the worksheet in Excel.  I want to be able to click on the icon and have it open up in Powerpoint.  

    Does anybody know how to do this?

  • Did you insert the slide from Insert -> Object -> Microsoft PowerPoint Slide?

    If so, did you notice the option, Display as icon? Select it and click OK.
