Viewing a Presentation in Slide Show View
Slide Show view is the view you use when you present an on-screen presentation to an
audience. When you click the Slide Show from current slide button or click the Slide
Show command on the View menu, the slide show starts. If you click the Slide Show from
current slide button, the current slide fills the screen, and if you click the Slide Show com-
mand on the View menu, the first slide fills the screen. No toolbars or other Windows ele-
ments are visible on the screen.
In Slide Show view, you move from one slide to the next by pressing the spacebar,
clicking the left mouse button, or pressing the key. Additionally, PowerPoint provides
a method for jumping from one slide to any other slide in the presentation during the slide
show: you can right-click anywhere on the screen, point to Go to Slide on the shortcut
menu, and then click one of the slide titles in the list that appears to jump to that slide.
When you prepare a slide show, you can add special effects to the show. For example,
you can add slide transitions , the manner in which a new slide appears on the screen dur-
ing a slide show. You can also add animations to the elements on the slide; that is, each
text or graphic object on the slide can appear on the slide in a special way or have a sound
effect associated with it. A special type of animation is progressive disclosure , a technique
in which each element on a slide appears one at a time after the slide background appears.
Animations draw the audience’s attention to the particular item on the screen.
You can also add a footer on the slides. A footer is a word or phrase that appears at the
bottom of each slide in the presentation.
