Step 1: Open your Google Slides presentation
The first step in changing your Google Slides presentation to portrait is to open it up. Once you have it open, you’ll see the typical landscape orientation.
Step 2: Click “File” and select “Page Setup”
To change the orientation of your Google Slides presentation, you’ll need to access the “Page Setup” options. Click on “File” in the top left corner of your screen, and then select “Page Setup” from the dropdown menu.
Step 3: Select “Custom” from the “Slides” dropdown menu
In the “Page Setup” dialog box, you’ll see a dropdown menu labeled “Slides.” By default, this will be set to “Standard (4:3).” Click on the dropdown menu and select “Custom” instead.
Step 4: Change the dimensions to portrait orientation
Once you’ve selected “Custom” from the dropdown menu, you’ll see two options for dimensions: width and height. To change your Google Slides presentation to portrait orientation, simply swap the values. For example, if your current dimensions are 10 inches wide by 7.5 inches tall, change them to 7.5 inches wide by 10 inches tall.
Step 5: Click “Apply” and “OK”
After you’ve adjusted the dimensions to portrait orientation, click on the “Apply” button to see the changes take effect. If you’re happy with the new orientation, click “OK” to save your changes.
