How to create a Custom Slideshow in Microsoft PowerPoint 2013
Let me set the scene – you arrive at the presentation venue to discover that you are presenting to a different audience than the one you were expecting. Most of your slides will be relevant but perhaps there is a whole section or group of slides that you don’t need. Instead of panicking and trying to recreate the presentation to fit the audience, you can simply create a custom show using only the slides you need. Then you can switch into the custom show and present with it.
This takes the stress out of the presentation so that you do not need to work out which slides to show or hide and which to skip. You will have done that in the few minutes before you are due to start.
Set up a custom show

- Click the Custom Shows icon on the Slide Show Ribbon

- Click on Show

In the Custom Shows dialogue box, click on the show you want to remove and then click on Remove.
