How to use presenter view in PowerPoint

Presenter View

In PowerPoint there is a feature available called Presenter View. This allows you to use your computer's multi-monitor capability to give the presenter two views with their presentations. This means you can show the Slide Show view on the data projector/screen but the presenters laptop has the Notes view.

To set up Presenter View;

  • Make sure your Laptop has the second monitor setup
  • In PowerPoint, from the Slide Show ribbon, in the Monitors group
  • Select Use Presenter View.

Multi-monitor Capability

If you have a desktop PC you will need to install a second screen.

Most modern Laptops support Multi-monitors by default. You just plug in your second monitor (or Data projector) and Windows recognises another screen.
