You can paste objects onto the same slide, between different slides, or even into other apps on your computer. Again, press Control-V on Windows, or Command-V on Mac to paste. The object will instantly reappear.

3. Copy and Paste Slides

Copy slide sidebar
Click a slide in the sidebar and press Control or Command+C to copy the entire slide.

You can click between any two slides while pasting, and your slide will paste into that position. Of course, you can click and drag to reorder later. And remember, any change you make can be easily undone by clicking the Undo arrow in the top left corner of the Google Slides menu.
