When you move your mouse in Slide Show view, buttons appear in the bottom-left corner

When entering Slide Show view, the method you use determines which slide you start on. If you use the Slide

selected. (You can also press Shift+F5 to do this or choose Slide Show
From Current Slide.) If you use the Slide
From Beginning command, or press F5, the presentation will start at the beginning.
