Keyboard and Mouse Tricks for Your Slide Show
During an onscreen slide show, you can use the keyboard and mouse to control
your presentation. Tables 6-1 and 6-2 list the keys and clicks that you can use.
If the cursor is hidden, you can summon it by jiggling the mouse. Then, when
the cursor is visible, a faint menu appears in the lower-left corner of the slide.
You can use this menu to activate various slide show features.
