If you've ever created a presentation using Google Slides , then you know that one of the reasons the program is so successful is that it has plenty of options to choose from.

But as impressive as the slideshows you create with it can be, there are bound to be a few slides that you don't need.

You could just delete them but if the presentation is a work in progress, you never know when you might want those slides back.

You may also want to get rid of a slide that contains research, sources, or to cut down on presentation time, but still want to keep the content in the slide for yourself.

Whatever the reason, you're in luck there's an easy way to hide a slide in a Google Slides presentation without outright deleting it. This means that while the slide will still show up in the overview of the slideshow, it won't appear when you press play.

Here's how to do it.
