There are so many little tricks in PowerPoint that you can use to quickly accomplish simple tasks. Some of these tricks may be applicable to you, and others you may find useless. Here is a nifty trick you can use when you need to reorganize paragraphs in your slides.

Normally people would highlight the paragraph, then use the cut and paste functions or maybe drag the text with the mouse. A slightly easier way to move a paragraph to a different location is the use the Shift + Alt keystrokes. Click anywhere in the paragraph that you want to move. Then hold down the Shift and Alt keys and use the up and down arrows on your keyboard to the paragraph.
