Created: Friday, February 26, 2016, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:45 am

You know that Action Buttons are helpful because they at least look like buttons! But choices are limited to what PowerPoint provides – and let’s face it, choices for Action Buttons have remained unchanged since the last 20 years. What has changed in those 20 years? There was no Facebook, almost no social media, and the internet was in its infancy. Given this scenario, it is no surprise that the Action Buttons are limited to VCR style buttons – those were probably in vogue 20 years ago! Now times have changed, and fortunately you can tweak Action Buttons to create your own variants, as we will show you in this tutorial.

Create new Action Button variants with some added icons.
