View All Slides During a Powerpoint Slideshow

A Powerpoint presentation is usually viewed as a slideshow, which guides us on a specific path through the information presented.
During a Powerpoint Slideshow, you may need to jump to a particular slide.
As mentioned in previous Powerpoint shortcuts, you can jump to a slide by typing the number of the slide and then Enter. Or you can press Control + S to get a list of slides and their titles. But what if you cannot remember the number and title of the slide and you need a quick visual?
Press G for a view of all the slides in the presentation.
You can then Arrow to the slide you want and press Enter to present it.
Or press G again (or Escape) to go back to presenting the current slide.
Note: If you use a screen reader, it will announce the “Slideshow Grid Thumbnail View” when you press G. If you use JAWS, you may need press Insert (or Caps Lock) + Z, to switch the “virtual cursor” off, so you can use these shortcuts.
