Here’s a simple way you can link to a specific slide in a presentation that’s been uploaded to SlideShare. This tip’s useful because it lets you show people a certain slide (or the start of a series of slides) rather than linking to the very start of the slideshow.
(Presentations on SlideShare often have dozens or even hundreds of slides. And if you’ve not heard of SlideShare, as you can tell from its name it’s a slide-sharing website – a bit like brainshark.com and sliderocket.com.)
Here’s an example. Suppose you want to link straight to the quote that’s on slide 63 of the slideshow below by Garr Reynolds. To do that, just add /63 to the end of the link, as you can see below:
That’s all there is to it!
While you’re here, though, you might also like to see how to:
- Jump straight to any slide during your PowerPoint slideshow
- Link to a given slide in a slideshow shared on Brainshark
- Link to a specific moment in a YouTube video
- Link to a given page of a PDF document

Fabulous tip! I wasn’t aware of this one before!
Thanks for your comment, Sheila. It can be very handy for pointing out a particular slide.
Likewise, see the links at the end of the post for related tips about jumping to specific content in a PDF or in a YouTube clip, rather than just to its start in each case.
Useful article. You often put together the best content pages & this is absolutely no different!
Thanks for commenting, Haley. I’m very glad you found this useful.
