PowerPoint - Layer Objects on Slides

When you add pictures, shapes, or other objects, they can overlap. But you can change the stacking order. For example, you may want one shape that is behind another shape to move to the front.

Move an object to the back or front

  1. Select the object.

  2. Right-click and select an option:

    • Send to Back > Send to Back - to move the object behind, or in back of another object.

    • Bring to Front > Bring to Front - to move the object in front of another object.
