This PowerPoint Slide Number tutorial explains how to place a slide number on all of the slides in your presentation, and then how to change the formatting for the slide numbers.
You can easily insert numbers on your PowerPoint slides to make them easier for audience members to reference. You may already be accustomed to placing page numbers on Slide, Handout, and Notes pages so that anyone following a printed copy of your presentation can easily find referenced pages. However, inserting numbers on slides enables audience members to locate the specific slides you are referencing regardless of whether the audience member is looking at a Handout page printed with six slides to a page or a Notes page that includes only one slide to a page.
Similarly, if an audience member wants to ask a question about a slide and there are multiple slides with similar titles, adding slide numbers makes it easier for a viewer to ask about a specific slide.
PowerPoint Slide numbers are included on Notes and Handout pages by default, but they are not turned on for slides by default. Do the following steps to add slide numbers to your the slides in your presentation. This PowerPoint tutorial will help you accomplish this task.

Step 1. Click Insert. Click Slide Number.
Step 2. The Header and Footer dialog box appears. Click the checkbox next to Slide Number. This will tell PowerPoint to place the slide number on every slide in the position show. Click Apply to All. The Header and Footer dialog box closes.
The page number is applied to all pages in the format specified in the Slide Master. When you add slide numbers to the slides in your presentation, they are also displayed when you print your slides.
Step 3. You can highlight the slide number and format the font, style, size, color and anything else you might normally format on text.
Step 4. After you insert numbers into your slides, you should view them in Slide Show Mode to make sure they are clearly visible. You can access Slide Show Mode by clicking slide Show and then View Show. You can use Print Preview to see how they will look when they are printed by clicking file and then Print Preview.
