Removing an animation in PowerPoint is a simple select-and-click option, but even before you remove any animations, do ascertain why you want to remove them. If the animation is there for a particular reason, you may want to look at other options first, as explained below.

  • Do you want to remove the animated object altogether? In that case, you can select the object and delete it. Do be careful about deleting though since you may not be able to get your deleted object back!
  • Or do you want to apply another animation, or even change the existing movement?
  • Finally, do you want to remove the animation from the slide object, and leave that object on the slide without any movement? If that’s what you want, explore the process in the following tutorials, depending upon which version of PowerPoint you are using.

To learn more, choose your version of PowerPoint. If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use.
