How to Insert Word Document into PowerPoint Presentation

When we are editing a PowerPoint presentation, probably some contents in Word document need to be imported into presentation. If we directly copy content from word document and then paste them in presentation, probably lots of time will be wasted. But suppose we can directly insert Word document into presentation, it would save most of time to do other things.

By inserting a Microsoft Word document into your PowerPoint presentation, you can include large amounts of information without using dozens of separate slides. If you choose to link to the document instead of embedding it, changes to the document are automatically reflected in PowerPoint. Alternatively, you can insert only a part of the document into the presentation.

Section 1: Insert an Entire Word Document into PowerPoint Presentation

There are two ways available for you to insert entire word document into presentation, directly embedding documents in presentation or linking to word document in presentation.

Step 1: Open the presentation in PowerPoint, select the slide from the left pane and then switch to the Insert tab.
