Move Music Icon to New Location on PowerPoint Slide

In this example, our intent is that by clicking on the image of a piano, the sound of a piano will play. However, we do not want the sound icons to show on the slide.

  1. When creating a PowerPoint trigger, the option to hide the music file icon is unavailable, so we will hide the music icons manually.

  2. Drag the music file icon to a blank area of the slide.

Note - Alternatively, you may hide the sound or music icon behind the clip art image. However, in this example, the clarinet image is too narrow to effectively hide the music icon, so we will use an alternate method.
