Removing PowerPoint Rehearsed Timings

Ever got annoyed or even had a real bad presentation due to rehearsed timings causing your presentation to automatically advance to the next slide? Well I have so there is the workaround and the real fix. This is tested to work in PowerPoint 2003

Disable advancing slides in a slide show

  1. In the menu bar: “Slide Show” > “Set Up Show…”
  2. In the “Advance slides” section select “Manually”

Real Fix:
Clear the timings completely!

  1. Select all the slides
  2. Right click a slide > “Slide Transition…”
  3. In the “Advance slide” section uncheck “Automatically after”
