How to Run a Slide Show in Microsoft PowerPoint 2010: Overview
You use the “Slide Show” view in PowerPoint 2010 to display the presentation on or from your computer. You can view either the entire presentation, or just few a few slides. This is the best way to view your presentation for its clarity, flow, appearance, and impact on the audience.
You can run your presentation in “Slide Show” view by clicking the “Slide Show” tab in the Ribbon. In the “Start Slide Show” group, you can either click the “From Beginning” button to start the slide show from the first slide or you can click the “From Current Slide” button to start your slide show from the currently selected slide in your presentation.
You can click the screen with your mouse to advance through the slides and animations in your presentation. After viewing the entire presentation, the slide show closes and returns to its previous view before PowerPoint ran the slide show. However, you should note that you may also press the “Esc” key on your keyboard to exit the slide show at any time.
If you right-click when in “Slide Show” view, you’ll see the command options that you have for navigating your presentation and adding annotations to the slide in a pop-up menu that appears. One command option is called “Pointer Options.” If you roll over this command in the pop-up menu, you’ll see a listing of the various pointer options that you have. You can toggle the display arrow to one of the annotation tools available, select the color of the ink used, and select the eraser to remove annotations that you have added.
A useful command to select from the pop-up menu is the “Help” command. If you select this command, you will see a listing of the many keyboard shortcuts that you can use in “Slide Show” view. These can assist you in minimizing the onscreen distraction when delivering your presentation.
