In this mini tutorial we are not going to go indepth about animation, we are just simply going to go through how to remove animation and transition from all slides and also how to remove animation from one slide. These instruction will work on PowerPoint 2010 and up. The tutorial was made using PowerPoint 2013.
1. Disable all animations in a PowerPoint presentation
Go to Slide Show tab -> Set Up Slide Show.
On the set up window select ‘Show without animation‘ and hit OK.
Do note that Transitions do still remain but you can easily remove those as well. Select all the slides from the Slides Pane that you want to remove Transition effect from (hold Shift to select multiple slides), once you got the slides selected go to Transitions tab and select None.
2. How to all remove animation from one slide
The fastest way to remove ALL animation from one slide on the select all the elements (CTRL + A) and from the Animation tab select None. Now you have successfully deleted all the animation from that slide.
The long way to do this is to open up the Animation Pane, selecting a animation and clicking on the arrow down and selecting Remove. And how do you know if a slide has animation before hand? You’ll see these little numbers on the slide while on the Animations tab. You can also see this star next to the slides in the slides pane if there is animation OR transition effect on the slide.
