Giving a Live Presentation

Benefits of giving a live presentation:

Starting the Presentation

  1. From the menu bar, select View > Slide Show. The slide show begins.

Moving Between Slides

  1. There are three options for moving forward in the presentation: Click the left mouse button, press Enter, or press the right arrow key.
  2. To move backwards in the presentation, press the Backspace key or press the left arrow key.


When you reach the last slide, a black screen appears. Press any key to return to PowerPoint. You can also send the slide show early by pressing the Esc key.

Pausing a Presentation

This is useful if you have automatic timings on your presentation and you need to stop for discussion.

  1. Right click on the slide. A menu appears.
  2. Select Pause.
  3. Right click on the slide again when you are ready to resume. A menu appears.
  4. Select Resume.
