Viewing an Onscreen Slide Show

Before you show your presentation to an audience, you should run through it several times on your own computer, checking that all the slides are in the right order and that the timings and transitions between the slides work correctly. This also enables you to fine-tune any monologue you might have to give as you show the slides so that what you are saying at any point in the presentation is synchronized with the slide that is being shown at that moment.

You can preview a slide show at any time; follow these steps:

  1. Open the presentation you want to view.

  2. Choose the Slide Show menu and choose View Show . The first slide in the presentation appears full screen (see Figure 12.1). A series of icons appear at the bottom left of the presentation screen. There is a previous slide arrow, a pen icon, a menu icon, and a next slide arrow. We will discuss the pen and menu icons later in the lesson.

    Figure 12.1. When you run your slide show, the entire screen is used to display the sides.


  3. To display the next or the previous slide, do one of the following:

    • To display the next slide, click the left mouse button, press the Page Down key, or press the right-arrow or down-arrow key. You can also click the right-pointing arrow that appears at the bottom left of the slide.

    • To display the previous slide, click the right mouse button, press the Page Up key, or press the left-arrow or up-arrow key. You can also click the left-pointing arrow that appears at the bottom left of the slide.

  4. When you have finished running the slide show, press the Esc key.


Start the Show! You can also start a slide show by clicking the Slide Show button in the bottom-left corner of the presentation window or by pressing F5 .
