Views for delivering and viewing a presentation Slide Show view You can get to SlideShow view from the task bar at the bottom of the slide window. Use Slide Show view to deliver your presentation to your audience.
The following post was written by PowerPoint MVP Geetesh Bajaj Most presenters just cram their slides with text — you may have seen such slides often, characterized by so much text that they look like a Word document repurposed as a slide — or even worse, it may appear as someone just copied tons of data from an Excel sheet and put in on a single slide!
So the question that needs to be asked is why do presenters assume that their slides need so much text? There are several answers — and most of these get repeated each time I ask this question in my training sessions: Presenters are scared — yes, this is another form of stage fear.
You must have seen many such presenters — typically these are the ones who look at their slides and read aloud to their audiences. Presenters expect questions — this happens mainly in internal presentations where a presenter may expect some questions from their boss or other superiors.
To combat these questions, they keep all sorts of supporting content available on their slides. Presenters are not prepared — most presenters seldom practice. Or some presenters never create their own slides — someone else made it for them, and although they did want to study these slides before the actual presentation, they either had no time to do so or they just procrastinated until there was no time left!
Now before we proceed, this article is about a cool PowerPoint feature that can help all presenters who are in a soup because of the reasons we just discussed.
However, presenters who are confident, well versed in their subjects, and prepared can also use this cool feature — that will make them awesome presenters! This cool feature is called Presenter View, and it allows two different views to be shown in your laptop and the projected display — let us just call these Displays 1 and 2.
Remember that we will use the terms Display 1 and Display 2 for the rest of this tutorial. Typically Display 2 is either projected or connected to a large TV — and your audience sees this view. In PowerPointthe options available in this view have been completely revamped: In previous versions of PowerPoint, you had to turn on this view manually — but PowerPoint auto detects if you have two displays available, and then turns on Presenter view.
In case it shows up on the wrong display, you can swap both displays — follow these steps: In Presenter view, select the Display Settings option in the toolbar at the top see Figure 2. Swap your displays If you are connected to only a single display and still want to emulate Presenter View, you can now do that from within Slide Show view.
Place your cursor over the navigation icons on the bottom left area of the projected slide, as shown in Figure 3, below. Click the last icon to bring up a contextual menu -- choose the Show Presenter View option in this menu see Figure 3 again. Notice the contextual menu with the Show Presenter View option Now that you have explored how you can bring up Presenter View, let us explore all the options available within this view, including the new options that allow you to zoom onto a specific part of your slide — or even pan across the slide area.
Additionally, you now also have dedicated Pause, Resume and Restart buttons that provide you with a better control over your presentation timings. Look at Figure 4, below — this shows a typical Presenter View screen. Presenter View Each of the individual elements in Presenter View is marked with a number in Figure 4, above -- and explained below.
Here you find three options: This lets you see your Window taskbar. One click will make your taskbar available, and another will hide it again — so, this is a toggle option. This can be a useful option if you need to access any of your open applications. For example, you may have an Excel sheet open that you want to show to your audience — clicking this option will let you easily access the Excel sheet via the Windows taskbar.
Clicking this option brings up the menu shown earlier see Figure 2. The topmost Swap Presenter and Slide Show option swaps your displays. You can also choose the Duplicate Slide Show option — this duplicates what you see on both displays — in effect, you no longer see Presenter View even though you are using two displays, as shown in Figure 5, below.
You end up with Slide Show views on both your displays compare with Figure 1. Two instances of Slide Show view, and no Presenter view Note: If you are only using a single display, these options will not be available.Views for creating your presentation.
