If you wish to copy a slide in PowerPoint, it requires just a few taps, whether you decide to do it in a web browser or in the application. On top of that, you can also decide to directly duplicate a slide, which gets rid of the need to tap again to paste. “Duplicate” actually creates a copy of the slide, right behind its original.
