Many of you certainly not only create the presentation, as well as present them to your colleagues or other training participants. To give you a better overview of the entire slideshow, easy to orient in your notes while switching the screening windows could disturb the audience, use a special tool for presenters called Presenter view that is integrated directly within PowerPoint. In this article you will read what are its capabilities and how to activate it. This tutorial is for version 2013, but is also included in older version, although some otherwise-looking. If this guide has helped you, become a fan on Facebook and recommend this site to your friends, it can be useful for them too.
Activating presenter view
Presenter view is activated by checking it on the Slideshow tab > Use Presenter View. In version 2013 can test this mode by key combination Alt + F5, even if you are not connected to a projector.
After connecting a projector or television it should be turned on in the settings of the Windows to broadcast on two outputs, ie. Extended mode. Switching signal is activated by holding down ⊞ Win + P, then you just start slideshow by F5 from the first slide.
The biggest advantage of the Presenter view is that the trainer sees on his screen a lot more information and tools than other students. They can see on the projector only the currently displayed slide.
