Add Slide Numbers in Google Slides
By default slides in Google Slides do not have “page numbers.” It is easy to add them to Google Slides.
Turn On Slide Numbering
Note that skipping title slides is not just the first slide. It is any slide that uses the “Title slide” layout. Any slide that has the “Title slide” layout will not have the slide number. The slide is still counted. If slide 15 is a title slide the “15” will not appear in the bottom right hand corner. However slides 16, assuming it is not a title slide, will have the “16” in the bottom right.
Moving Slide Numbers
If you select the “Master” layout and change the appearance of the placeholder this will make a universal change to all layouts. Notice in the example below that I made the font on the hashtag Comic Sans, Hot Pink, font size 90 and moved it more towards the middle of the sheet.
