How to Add Hyperlinks in Google Slides

Having a URL in plain sight in a presentation isn’t very attractive, and this can ruin a nice and well-organized work. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to add links to other documents, websites, multimedia resources or even other slides in the same presentation. Any of the resources included in the presentation, such as texts or images, can be used as a link.

Adding a Link to a Website

  • Select the resource.
  • Click Insert → Link or press Ctrl + K (Cmd + K in Mac). You can also click the Insert link button on the toolbar.
Adding links in Google Slides
  • Enter the URL of the website you want to link to. Then press Apply.

Adding a Link to Another Slide in the Same Presentation or to a Document Stored in Google Drive

  • Select the resource.
  • Click Insert → Link or press Ctrl + K (Cmd + K in Mac). You can also click the Insert link button on the toolbar.
Adding links in Google Slides
  • Click the Slides in this presentation drop-down arrow and select the slide you want to link to. You also have options to go to the next, previous, first and last slide too.
Linking to a different slide in the same presentation
  • To link the resource to a document stored in your Google Drive, enter the name in the Link field.
Linking to a document stored in Google Drive
  • If the resource you use as a link is a text, it could appear underlined and with a different format. Don’t worry, you can change it back, and the link won’t be removed.

Note: If you want to use multiple objects in the same slide as links, you must do it individually because the Link option is disabled if you select more than a single element.
