Here’s how to delete all notes in PowerPoint that you shouldn’t miss.

How to Delete Notes from PowerPoint

Now let’s take a look at how to remove notes from one, multiple, or all slides in PowerPoint on your computer.

How to Delete Notes from a PowerPoint Slide

If you only want to delete a note from a specific slide in your PowerPoint presentation without removing all the notes from the slides, you can do this quickly and easily directly from that slide.

This action will only delete the note from the current slide. All other slides in the presentation will still retain the notes.

Step 1: Open your presentation, find and select the slide that contains the note you want to delete.

Step 2: On the ribbon toolbar, click the View tab.

Step 3: Next, click the Notes button in the Show group at the bottom.

Step 4: At the bottom of the screen, you will now see the note inserted into the current slide. Your task is simply to highlight all the text in that note by clicking and dragging the left mouse button over all the contents of the note.

If it’s just a single line of note, you can simply click three times to select all.

Step 5: Finally, click the Delete button to delete that note from the current slide. Repeat the same steps if you want to delete additional notes on other slides.
