Remove PowerPoint speaker notes in 30 seconds – from all slides at once

Sometimes you need to remove all PowerPoint speaker notes before sharing your presentation with others. This is really handy if you have left notes for yourself that you don’t want your audience or boss (or cat) to see.

Video transcript – how to remove PowerPoint speaker notes

Here’s how to remove all speaker notes from your PowerPoint slides in about half a minute.

It doesn’t matter how many slides you have in your presentation… A few clicks and about half a minute is all it takes.

This trick is useful if you have lots of notes down here to help with your presentation, but then you want to send a clean version without the notes to someone else.

First things first, go to the FILE tab and hit SAVE A COPY.

This is so that you can make a separate file for sending out, so that you don’t lose your notes in the original file.

In your new copy of the presentation, click on the FILE tab again, then go to INFO right here.

Next, where it says INSPECT PRESENTATION, hit CHECK FOR ISSUES and INSPECT DOCUMENT.

The document inspector here is a great tool for finding problems with your presentation.

You can run lots of other checks here as well. But for now, here’s the option we want. Make sure PRESENTATION NOTES is checked, then hit INSPECT.

In this window here, scroll down and look for this note about presentation notes. Hit REMOVE ALL to delete all of your notes,
and that’s all there is to it.

You can close out of the document inspector now, and all the slide notes will be gone.

Did you forget to save a new copy of your presentation and lost your notes in the process?

If you have stored your presentation in OneDrive, it’s easy to get it back.

In that case, check this video here about how to roll back files in OneDrive to a previous version.
