In PowerPoint for the web you can insert footers and slide numbers for all slides in the presentation, single slides, or a set of selected slides.

When you insert footers and slide numbers in a presentation, their position on the slide depends on the design you're using. For example, in some slide designs footers may appear at the top of a slide as a header or along one side. 


Insert a footer or slide number for all slides in a presentation

  1. Go to Insert > Footer > Footer.

    Tip: If you just want to quickly turn on slide numbers in the footer, select Insert > Footer > Slide Number.

  2. In the Footer pane, select Footer.

  6. Select Apply to All.

Insert a unique footer for selected slides
