In Slide Show view, you would typically advance to the next slide by clicking your mouse or pressing Enter on your keyboard. Using the Advance Slides settings in the Timing group, you can set your presentation to advance on its own instead and display each slide for a specific amount of time. This is useful for unattended presentations, such as at a tradeshow booth.
