Pause Slides, Sounds, and Movies - and Resume!

Is it possible to pause the slide show AND the music simultaneously? I want to be able to stop on a particular slide and talk about it with the music OFF, then start the next slide and have the music resume playing. If there is a way to do this Microsoft sure doesn't make it clear how. Thanks.

That's certainly possible - and this also works with any movies in the presentation. Most laptops (and even keyboards these days) have a Mute button or hotkey - press that to mute the sound. To resume, you'll have to press the Mute button or hotkey again.

To pause both the presentation and sound at the same time, press the Pause key on your keyboard - to resume, press Pause again.

In the same way if you don't want the slide to be visible while playing press W or B to see a white or black screen that also pause music and video - to resume from that point onwards, press W or B again!

I've create a ppt with a menu structure on the main slide. I have music that plays continuosly but would liek the music to stop when the user clicks to one slide that has a movie embedded into it. But would like the music to start, when the user clicks back to the main menu. Can this be done?

Use transition sounds and set it to loop. Then, one slide before the movie, choose the Stop Playing Sound option in transition sounds. One slide after the movie, add the transition sound and set it to loop.
