Select the shape.
On the Insert tab of the ribbon, in the Links group, click Action.
Select the radio button 'Run Macro', then select the macro.
Click OK.

P.S. 'Run Macro' can only be selected if your presentation contains macros, otherwise it will be disabled (greyed out).

Thank you so much sir. Sorry I didn't look in insert tab. I only looked in Format tab and right click options. Once again thank you sir.

It's confusing - PowerPoint is very different from the other Office applications...
