PowerPoint aids in delivering strong business presentations. Various characteristics and features offered by this program set a series of slides to keep your audience focused throughout your discussion. To build a generic slide show, various elements are shown or concealed. One such element is texts, which can be hidden or revealed, as per choice.

Here are some ways on how you can hide text in PowerPoint.


  • Click on the slides that need to get the texts hidden from. You can find the slides on the “Slides” tab at the left pane of the PowerPoint presentation. Then click on “Slide Sorter”, which is in the Presentation Views group at the Views tab.


  • You can also click on the “Animations” tab, which is located at the top of the PowerPoint panel. Highlight the text you wish to hide, and then select any one of the options in the “Entrance” choices, which is in the “Add Animation” group.


  • You can also click a color swatch that matches with the background color over the text that you want hidden. Click on the “A” button in the Font Color command.


  • Click on the Insert tab’s button, and then click and drag to draw a box over the text you are hiding. Click on “Format Shape” and select “Solid Fill” with the white color from the Color control. Click on “Close” to hide the text.


  • Click on the “Hide” command at the context menu in the Slides tab. This will hide a full slide as well.
