Animation icon showing in PowerPoint 2010

Q: Animation icon showing in PowerPoint 2010


I am editing a PowerPoint presentation that was originally created by someone else. In the slide view (left side pane), there is a small 'animation on this slide' icon visible next to each slide, however, there do not appear to be any animations in the deck. Why are these icons appearing and how can I get rid of them?

Thank you.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Do you want the animations to show or you don't want them at all. This MS website might help you. There is a video in it as well.

I have a series of text and graphics on my powerpoint slides That I want to animate, specifically I want to control when they are visible. So far I seem only to be able to either have an object visible all the time from when it appears or to vanish on the next mouse click. What I really want to do is make several object visible in sequence, then make the group vanish together when I show the next object.

Any powerpoint guru have an answer for this.


A:PowerPoint 2000 Animation

you should be able to do that in the animation control

In fact i just used the control to select two items and then applied the animation and they bot come in together

So if you select item 1) then hold control key and select item 2 then hold control and select item 3 - now apply the animation for them to enter the slide.

now select item1 hold control key and select 2 hold control key and select 3 .....4.......5 now applyy animation to exit

3 should come in and five go out - just tried it with text on powerpoint - version XP - but i'm sure i did this even on version 97

I am working on a PowerPoint presentation that was created by another person. I am using PowerPoint 2003. The problem I've encountered is that there are several slides where you have to click repeatedly before it will advance to the next slide. I've checked that the animations are set up consistently throughout the presentation and can't figure out what the problem might be. Any help would be appreciated.

A:PowerPoint and animation question


Things to check to find the "extra clicks"

1) If it's a bullet list slide...and each bullet is set to appear on a mouse click, there may be un-needed 'returns/enters' that the original creator has put into the bullet list (even though you cannot see a bullet) to create extra space between each bullet/line of text. Remove these, so that there is only one 'return/enter' after each bullet line

2) if it's another kind of slide, look through all the "custom animations" of each object to see if it says "on mouse click". You can cycle through each object by pressing the "tab" key on your keyboard.

Is it possible to load an animation into powerpoint apart from those that are held with in its own file. ie if I create an animation in Flash for example, and save it as a .avi file, I can import it into the PP file, but it will either not play or will just run once but not loop.

Any ideas?

I have created a slide that has 10 animations that pop up when I on click each one along with text. It looks like:

Animation 1: clean your computer keyboard with compressed air
Animation 2: clean dust particles
Animation 3: picture of dirty computer
Animation 4: pciture of dirty keyboard
Animation 5: clean your monitor with a microfiber towel

I want animation 6 to be this microfiber that when I do a swipe of the screen erases all my previous animations so it looks as if I just cleaned the monitor.

I have looked through all of my options for what I can make my animation do and cannot find something that will erase prior ones when the microfiber towel swoops across screen. Anyone out there know?

A:PowerPoint Animation Question

In Office 2010 one object can have 4 types of animation on the same slide (Entrance, Emphasis, Exit, and Motion Path).

Go to Animations tab and turn on Animation Pane. You will see order of animations and their type.

Let’s say all your objects have Fly In animation as Entrance Animation.
Then you highlight your microfiber towel and create another animation for it by clicking button “Add Animation on Animations tab”. Select Motion Path animation and select “Spiral or Custom” trajectory, so it looks like towel is moving across screen.

Now it is time to add Exit animations for first objects. Highlight it, click Add Animation –Exit. There are such options as Disappear, Fade out, Fly Out etc. To make all objects disappear at the same time you can highlight animation in Animation Pane, right click on it and select “Start with previous”.

If you have troubles you can always PM me your file and I will do animation on that slide for you.

I am in middle of a serious problem.

I created an presentation with custom animations in it . I also inserted a button into the presenation which when clicked will insert an image into the slide. I generally click this button after all custom animation is over. The problem is when i add new image by clicking the button all the custom animation is playing again which is very frustrating.

This happens only if we give the custom animation have with previous or after previous property.

Please help me out.

You have: The microsoft gurus THINK that if you go to a slide for a second time you won't want to go through the animations again.

I know it can't be done.

But can it? Through any kind of workaround whatsoever (including VB coding). I already know of the technique of grouping different objects so they animate simultaneously, but those objects necessarily have the same animation style. I need, for example, two objects to fly from opposite sides of the screen at the same time.

Though it would be grand to upgrade my box, it's out of the question; I'm at a corporate workstation.

In lieu of a workaround, are there any articles that give a more in-depth explanation of PPs handling of animations or events in general? It seems like this has been given up as a lost cause.

I'm building a slide using custom animations to demonstrate personnel movement through out a number of buildings. I've got 49 custom animations built. The last two just don't work. I've built those two in the same way I've build all the others. I'm wondering if I've come up again a limit to the number of custom animations 1 slide can have?

I guess what I'm really trying to figure out is should I continue to figure out is should I continue to figure out why it isn't working (i.e. although I thought I did, I didn't really set them up in the same was as previous ones. ) or stop and move onto another slide to continue since there actually is a limitation.

on a slide, for Custom Animation I would like to change the "Speed" of the effect.

Currently the only options are "Slow, Medium, Fast, Very Fast" but I have seen some presentations that within this drop down have the actual time they would like the effect to take place.....say like "0.08 seconds"

How can I accomplish this?

I have a toolbar on my taskbar titled "Programs". It has about eight folders in it. I made another toolbar, and placed it directly adjacent to the Programs toolbar, to obscure the eight folders and force it to be a dropdown menu.

Trouble is, as soon as I lock my taskbar, right next to the arrow that displays the eight items of my Programs toolbar in menu-form, one of the eight items is showing up as an icon, as if the other toolbar isn't close enough to the Programs toolbar in order to completely obscure the eight items.

Here's what I mean in graphic form:

It's bugging me to no end. Anyone else had this problem/resolved it?

A:Toolbar on taskbar should only be showing an arrow but is showing icon

Hello thewonkits, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I notice this happens when using small icons for a toolbar. If you like, you could unlock the taskbar, right click on the dotted separator line to the left of the two top far left toolbars (one at a time) click on View and Large Icons, then lock the taskbar to see if that may look ok to you. It will make the top row a bit bigger though.

Hopefully someone may know a better way to hide that bit of icon poking out when locked.

Hi, y'all!

I recently upgraded to Office 2010 Pro from Office 2007. All programs work fine, except the PowerPoint.

The program opens with no problem. I can open the presentation in the Normal or Slide Sorter view, but when I try opening it in the Slide Show or Reading View, all I get is a few colored lines, no images. Almost like the graphics are bad, which is not the case. Could it be some settings I can tweak, or is it a comparability issue?

I'm still running Win XP, the graphics card is fine. All other programs in the suite work fine.

Anyone have an idea? Thanks a bunch!

All files were there prior to conversion - when I play it I have 1 song/sound clip at the start and that's it......

I have created a presentation that has been saved as a slide show. The videos will not play in the viewer (Powerpoint Viewer 2010). I have tried linking and embedding the videos. They play several seconds then stop. I have also tried embedding Windows Media Play but it does not run at all. Does anyone have any ideas that might help? This presentation is part of a 5 day class which I would like the videos available thru the presentation.

Note: In the full version of Powerpoint 2010 everything appears to work fine. The computers in the classroom only have the view software.

Is there a way to launch a media play externally that could play the videos? That is without stopping the presentation.


A:Powerpoint viewer 2010 will not play videos

I had a similar problem recently.

A trainer friend gets PowerPoint presentations from his head office, and has to present them on his laptop, or whatever PCs are available at client premises.
On a machine with PowerPoint 2010 installed, the presentation worked fine, and attached video files played correctly when located in the same folder as the PPT file.

Not everyone wants to pay for the full version of Microsoft Office, just to view PowerPoint presentations.
But when he downloaded the latest free PowerPoint Viewer from Microsoft and installed on these machines, running either Windows 7 or Windows 8, the slides would present okay, but the videos would not play!
This was a major problem.

On a hunch, I found a copy of the 2003 version of PowerPoint Viewer, and installed it on these machines.
And I found that this one works perfectly!! plays the videos and presents the slides no problem!
Even though the PPT was created using PowerPoint 2010.

And the PowerPoint Viewer 2003 installer was only a 1.9MB download, compared to the latest PowerPoint Viewer 2010 which is a 61MB download and then won't play the videos!!
Well done Microsoft, make the program 30 times bigger and not as good!!

Okay, PowerPoint Viewer 2003 is only a 32bit app, and it hides itself away in the folder:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\PowerPoint Viewer\PPTVIEW.exe

But it works fine on both Windows 7 and Windows 8, including 64 bit versions, and it's not too difficult to set it as the default viewer for PPT files.

Hey Guys,

We have an issue where people are looking at PP presentations in 2013 and getting the error message or a big X in it, but if you open the presentation in 2010 it looks perfect, no errors or X's. I tried the disable hardware acceleration option, and opening a new PP and inserting and same deal. The quick workaround I found was that if I open the image in paint and than save it as a jpeg (which is already was) then I can insert it or drag and drop it. The files are on our network, and even when I re-saved them they were still on the network. Has anybody else seen this issue? By the way we are on Windows 7, plenty of memory, and SP1 (15.0.4569.1504). Any help would be much appreciated as I am flabbergasted (sp?) by this issue, thanks guys.

win 7, 2010 powerpoint cutting in and out only when attached to projector. Cuts out then right back on during presentation. Seems to only do it when hooked to a projector. Have used various projectors with same problem. Have tried updating drivers but the problem continues. Have updated Microsoft office but no change.

A:2010 powerpoint cutting in and out, win 7, when attached to projector.

What do you mean exactly? Do you mean that it reverts back to display only on the computer, even for a few seconds? Are you using Powerpoint in dual-screen presenter's mode (full screen on the projector, image, comments and next slides on the main screen)? Are you displaying movies or playing sounds when problems happens?

1. Until you talked of various projectors, I thought it was a problem on that end. But are you using the same cable (or cable extension / adapter) to link your computer to the projector? If so, I suspect the problem would lie in the cable. In our office, we had many projection problems with travelling personnel (on-and-off projector, weird colours, etc.), and in all cases but one it was a faulty cable. If you are always using different cables (and no dongle / adapter of your own), then it might be your output port. If you have the choice between VGA port and HDMI or display port, try to connect a projector using the other port to see if it works reliably.

2. If you have intermittent problem, Powerpoint's presenter's mode doesn't help because you not only have to deal with hardware problem but with the quirky reaction of Powerpoint. Using the normal mode with both displays showing the same thing would help a bit go around the problem.

3. I have noticed that Powerpoint sometimes has problems dealing with too large or too complex videos. What "too complex" means depends on a combination of factors like how much RAM, your computer speed... I would think it is the issue especially if point 4 is a problem.

4. It may be hard to diagnose if the problem is very intermittent. But does it happen only with Powerpoint or also with Word, Excel, Acrobat, etc.?

2. Click on File and then on options
3. Click on addins on left navigation panel

I use two computers to work on PowerPoint presentations. One has 2003, and the other has 2010. Often when I open a presentation on the other computer, the alignment of text changes. I think that in one version, text in a slide that uses bullets aligns to the left of the slide (under the bullet), and in the other version it aligns with the text after the bullet. Is there a way to prevent having to go through and manually tab everything into place when I use the other version?

A:PowerPoint 2003 and 2010 text in slides

You didn't say what version of Office was on the Other computer? 2003 or 2010? If you create a presentation in 2010 do you save it as an Office compatible version (97-2003)a .pps instead of a .ppsx? On the 2003 computer you can install the PowerPoint Viewer to see if that helps
Microsoft wants you to upgrade all your computer to at least Office 2007, soon all files created in newer versions of Office will not be readable in older versions of Office.

I have MS Office 2010 on a Windows 7 PC. I have used audio in PP's for years. However, I find that PP 2010 will not allow me to add any audio to existing PP's that were created earlier. The ones that I created in the last 2 years, fine. If I create a new one, fine. I have tried everything, but it will not work. Is this supposed to be the case? Older PP's (and I'm talking "older" in the sense of PP's that were mainly created with my older version of PP 2002) cannot have audio added to them?

Hi there,

In both 2007 & 2010 version of MS powerpoint, the table colour options that show up seem completely arbitrary ( Table Tools > Table styles)
I usually get the default gray, plain, the ghastly green & blue. But in other slide designs, colour choices changes ie in a slide design with say, brown-white theme, I get suddenly lovely shades of brown to play with. What gives? Am I a prisoner of MS design whims?

Hi everyone,

I was attending a presentation recently and noticed that the presenter's laptop did not display the same thing as the projector (i.e. the current slide), but instead showed a box containing the current slide (i.e. what the audience saw), another box with the next slide, and the timing of the current slide and of total presentation.

I think being able to preview your next slide before making it visible to the audience can be very helpful when giving a presentation, and I would like to ask if anyone knows if (and how) this can be done in PowerPoint 2010. The presenter I saw had a Mac so he was probably using Keynote to deliver his presentation, however hopefully this can be accomplished in PowerPoint as well.

Many thanks in advance for any help!

I have already gone through this at least 7 times trying to correct this problem, but it seems Powerpoint has a mind of its own. I have ensured to save each time I make a change to ensure it is properly updated, but everytime I close and reopen, the transition times are reset.

Add Or Embed YouTube Videos In PowerPoint 2010

There are two ways to embed YouTube videos - Using Video From Online Video Site option and Using 3rd party add-in called authorStream.

Method 1: Using ?Video From Online Video Site? Option

This is the quickest way of embedding YouTube videos in PowerPoint presentation. With this option you can easily add YouTube videos and give presentation as long as it is not uploaded online. In order words, the embedded YouTube video will be lost if you upload the PowerPoint online.
To embed videos using this method, go to Insert, click Video and select Video from online video site option.

This will open a new window where you have to add the embed code. After you have added the code, click Insert.

You can now resize the inserted video and customize it however you like. Remember that it will only load during the slideshow. To test the video, run the slideshow(hit F5) and then click Play when the video is loaded.

Method 2: Using authorStream Powerpoint Add-In

Like I mentioned before, if you upload the slideshow for online viewing using the above method, the embedded videos will be lost. So authorStream makes sure that the embeded videos are not lost.

Once you have installed it, it will add a new authorStream tab in PowerPoint. Select this tab and then click Insert by URL. Now add the YouTube video URL, hit Preview, and then click Insert In Slide.

You can also search for YouTube videos using the search bar. Apart from inserting videos, it can also add Images from Bing. If you simply want to give a normal presentation and don?t want to upload it for online viewing, then the first method is more suitable.

I wonder if anyone else has run into this problem? I have embedded Youtube videos that won't play in PowerPoint 2010. The video shows up as a black rectangle. If I choose preview it hangs for a very long time, then a window pops ups stating: To play the selected item you must first install the latest version of Flash player. I of course have done this. I even used their uninstall tool and reinstalled Flash. Flash is working correctly.

The videos played as recently as a few weeks ago, so I'm not sure why suddenly they won't. I created a few new ones to test and they do the same thing. I also tried running them as an administrator and it still doesn't work.

I tried Icon Cache Rebuilder and that didn't work.
Does anyone know how I can get the default Foxit icon to show for my pdf files?
Thank you.

A:PDF Icon Showing Generic

Hello Dawter -
There are 2 general ways to do this -
1. Un / Reinstall the program
2. Right click on the Icon and select Properties > Often there is an option to "Change Icon"
If you select option 2 a range of mainly Generic icons are offered to you - Select one of the offered items.
If this option is not offered, yours may just pop back, or you can use Option 1-
Thank You -

I created an autoplay cd-rom for pc. In the root of the cd I have an AUTORUN.INF file that contains:


The mike.ico icon is located in the fscommand folder.

The cd starts and autoplays as it should. However, the icon does not appear... a weird default icon appears. I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong. Any ideas?

Go into the properties of those and see if the icon is there in change icon and if it is try changing it to something else and then change it back and see if that fixes it.

My usb icon does not show. Its not a big deal but it really annoys me when things dont work the way they are supposed to especially when they used to. This happened about a month ago. I turned on my laptop and bam, all of a sudden icons arent showing up and looking through forums i have fixed all but one. When i plug in any mass storage device (usb; flash drive, external hard drive, mp3 player) the icon shows a general icon as if the icon was missing. I have attatched a picture so you can see exactly what I am talking about. If anyone knows how to fix this it would be GREATLY appreciated.

hi Alex, and welcome to sevenforums,

If one or more of your icons are not displaying correctly, or that your icon cache is corrupted, then you might consider rebuilding the icon cache to reset and reload the icon images into the icon cache.

try this - and let us know if it worked.

you may have to reboot after doing it.

I am running Windows XP SP2 and have a problem with the webpage icon shortcut. When I go to a given program using Start > All Programs > any program with a link to their web page, the icon displayed is the default document icon %SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll (1) and not the web browser icon IE or FF. I have to change these manually by finding the icon target and changing it for each program's webpage.

Is there a way to correct this where I don't have to manually change each one but where the change would apply to all program's webpage shortcuts? I would like for the webpage icons to display the FF icon.

Many thanks for any help.

Try right clicking on one and choose "Open With" and then "Choose Program". A list should appear. Select Firefox from the list and make sure the "Always open this type of file with this program" checkbox is selected. Then hit OK. See if that works.
