To play a song in the background of your slide show, do the following:
Tip If you use music from an online web site, download it to your computer’s hard drive first, and then insert it to PowerPoint from there.
- On the Insert tab, click Audio, and then click Audio on my PC.
- Locate and double-click the music file.
- On the Playback tab, click Play in Background.
Do you want to play multiple songs across multiple slides?
If your slide show is longer than one song, you can add more songs. However, if you find that you are having trouble synchronizing the music with the slide show, you can use a third-party audio editing tool, such as Audacity® to string the songs together into one file so they play continuously throughout the slide show.
