Curved Arrows in PowerPoint is a common way to point to a key object, and this short tutorial will show how to create it.

 

How to Make Curved Arrows in PowerPoint

 

1. Find and Add the Curved PowerPoint Arrow to Your Slide

I've got two boxes here and want to kind of connect them with a curved arrow. Let's go to the Insert option on the ribbon and then click on the Shapes dropdown.

2. Reposition the Curved Arrow in PowerPoint

You can drag the curved PowerPoint arrow to reposition it other places on the slide and also grab the handles to resize it as you want.

3. Change the Style of a PowerPoint Curved Arrow

You can change the color or style using the Shape Styles options on the Format tab to make the curved arrow fit with the design of your slide. They're easy to change as many times as you want.

Use the Format > Shape Styles options to change the look of your PowerPoint curved arrow.

Finally, you can always return to the Insert > Shapes menu and choose the curved arrow coming from a different direction. As an example, choose this left curved arrow for an effect from the opposite direction. Use these to help objects on the slide relate.

Add another curved arrow to help objects relate

You can add another curved arrow to help objects relate.

These curved arrows are a really nice effect, when you want to tie together objects on the slide and show the viewer how different things are related to one another.
