We already showed how you can insert Action Buttons in PowerPoint 2010. Once inserted, you can do so much more with these Action Buttons — what sets these Action Buttons apart from other shapes is the iconography they contain. For most users, an icon such as a leftwards arrow indicates moving to the previous slide and a rightwards arrow does indicate progressing to the next slide. Another advantage of these icon-equipped Action Buttons is that they are language independent, and can work very well in multi-language and international presentations.
