Presenting Your Slide Show

Presenting in PowerPoint can be daunting. Use these PowerPoint presentation tips for a successful, engaging, professional experience.

Presenter view

If you're presenting your slide show with a second display—like a projector—you can use Presenter view. Presenter view gives you access to a special set of controls on your screen that the audience won't see, allowing you to easily reference slide notes, preview the upcoming slide, and much more.

To access Presenter view:

Start your slide show as you normally would, then click the Slide Options button and select Presenter View. Alternatively, you can press Alt+F5 on your keyboard to start the slide show in Presenter view.
