Presenting with Two Screens Using Presenter View
Here are some of the key features of Presenter View:
The current slide (the one the audience is viewing) appears at the left. The next
slide appears at the upper right.
The speaker notes for each slide appear in the lower-right pane. You cannot edit
them from here, however. Buttons for making the text larger or smaller appear
below the speaker notes pane so you can adjust the font size.
A time and duration display appears above the current slide. It tells you the cur-
rent time and how long this slide has been displayed.
Below the current slide are a series of icons that roughly correspond to the icons
you see in Slide Show view in the lower-left corner. From left to right, they are as
Pen and Laser Pointer Tools. Opens a menu from which you can choose a pen,
laser pointer, highlighter, or arrow and choose the ink color. You can also erase
any annotations you have made with the Eraser tool here.
See All Slides. Opens a page of thumbnail images of all the slides in the presen-
tation so you can quickly jump to the one you want.
Zoom. Zooms in on a part of the slide.
Black or Unblack Slide Show. Toggles between showing the slide and showing a
More Slide Show Options. Opens a menu of additional control options. For
example, you can hide Presenter view from here, show a black or white screen,
show or hide ink markup, get help, or end the show.
Forward and back arrows appear at the bottom of the screen; you can use these to
move through the presentation.
At the top of the screen are three buttons:
Show Taskbar. Shows or hides the Windows taskbar so you can switch out of
Slide Show view to take care of some other task.
Display Settings. Opens a menu from which you can see which monitor is dis-
playing Presenter View and which is displaying the full-screen show to the audi-
ence and switch them if you like.
End Slide Show. Exits from Slide Show view.
The panes are adjustable by dragging the dividers between them, so you can have
larger thumbnails, a smaller slide display, more or less room for notes, and so on.
