Delivering a presentation takes skill. Not only do you have to be comfortable speaking in front of the public, you also need to possess knowledge about how to use PowerPoint. After all, it’s the program you’ll be using to create the presentation and deliver it once it’s complete.

Presentation mode in PowerPoint enables you to view your speaker notes privately while delivering your presentation on multiple monitors. This is a very helpful way to remain organized throughout the delivery of your slideshow. You’ll stay on task, know what is coming up next, and be able to pace yourself so that the audience is able to keep up and follow you.

Setting Up Presenter Mode in PowerPoint 2010, 2013, and 2016

To set up PowerPoint in Presenter view, you must do the following:

  1. Go to the ‘Slide Show’ tab and in the ‘Monitors’ group, you’ll need to select the option that reads ‘Use Presenter View’.

    Windows ‘Display Settings’ will then open.
  2. While in ‘Display Settings,’ select the monitor icon that you prefer to use while viewing your speaker notes.

    You’ll need to choose ‘This is my main monitor’ by checking the box. If the box is already checked, it has designated the monitor as your main monitor.
  3. Choose the monitor icon for the second monitor.

    This is the one that the audience will see. You’ll want to select the check box that reads ‘Extend my Windows Desktop onto this monitor’.

PowerPoint on your smartphone can act as a remote control for your presentation. You’re able to view your speaker notes on it as well. You can even use a laser pointer on your smartphone during your presentation.

How to Download and Use Microsoft Office the First Time

If you don’t own Microsoft Office but want to start using it right away, the best option is a digital download. It gives you immediate access to the software or application purchased as well as instructions on how to install it on your PC, Mac or mobile device.

Before downloading your chosen version of Microsoft Office, it’s important to know if your system can handle it. You’ll need to pay attention to the system requirements to make sure that they are met by your hardware.

The Case for Digital Downloadable Software and Apps

You can get the software that you need to complete your PowerPoint presentation by downloading it. That means that you don’t have to make a separate trip to the store to buy hard copy discs. Instead, you can download it from the convenience of your own living room whenever it is convenient for you.

Here are a few more reasons why a digital download of MS Office is a good idea:

  • It’s gentler on the environment.

    It doesn’t generate any waste, cost anything to ship or require manpower to deliver. You’ll receive the information that you need to get started via email. Follow the instructions to download and install your software.
  • You get access to customer service whenever you need it.

    When you buy from a retailer, you’re not getting access to Microsoft experts. You’re getting store employees who know a little bit about the products that they sell. You get access to our customer service staff who are knowledgeable about Microsoft software and apps.
