Before you present your slide show, you'll need to think about the type of equipment that will be available for your presentation. Many presenters use projectors during presentations, so you might want to consider using one as well. This allows you to control and preview slides on one monitor while presenting them to an audience on another screen.
You can also click the Play Slide Show command at the bottom of the PowerPoint window to begin a presentation from the current slide.
Click the Slide Show tab on the Ribbon to access even more options. From here, you can start the presentation from the current slide and access advanced presentation options.
You can also hover your mouse over the bottom-left and click the arrows to move forward or backward.
The presentation will also end after the last slide. You can click the mouse or press the spacebar to return to Normal view.
