If you’ve created a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation and shared it with others to review and edit, you may want to know what changes were made so you can approve or reject them. Unfortunately, PowerPoint does not include a “track changes” feature like Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel. Instead, you’ll need to compare your original presentation file and the changed file of another person.

Review changes made to your PowerPoint presentation

  1. Open the original PowerPoint presentation you created and sent to other people for review.
  2. In the Ribbon, click the Review tab.
  3. In the Compare section, click the Compare option.

  2. The Revisions section is now visible on the right side of the PowerPoint program window. Changes to the currently-selected slide are displayed under Slide Changes. Changes to the entire presentation are displayed under Presentation Changes.
  3. Select a change in the Revisions section, which highlights the text, picture, shape, or another object that was changed.
  4. To review the change, click the Accept option in the Compare section of the Review tab.
