In PowerPoint, slides are numbered by default from 1 but that’s not always what you need.
For example, you’re working on some slides which are just part of a set of slides eg. working on slides from number 15 to 20 separately.
To change the default slide number open PowerPoint 2010 or PowerPoint 2007, click on Design | Page Setup | Page Setup.
In PowerPoint 2003 the dialog and option is the same. Get to Page Setup via the File menu.
In the Page Setup window that pops open, in "Number slides from" enter a number from where you want the slide number to begin. After entering the number click on OK button. The default slide number will change from 1 to the number you entered and the counting will begin from that particular number onwards.
