    Michael,

    Powerpoint does not have the ability to display a deck of slides in a random
    order.

    However, this add-in does give powerpoint the ability

  3. For a straightforward random slideshow, Tushar's add-in is the best. For
    other options, check out "Randomize the order of a PowerPoint presentation"
    from the PPT FAQ (it lists Tushar's add-in first because it is the best):
