When you work on a presentation using Adobe Presenter within PowerPoint, then you really cannot preview using PowerPoint's Slide Show view. And that's because Adobe Presenter's output options are completely different than PowerPoint's.
Let us imagine that you added narrations or synced your audio with animation on PowerPoint slides using Presenter. Now to preview, you will need to use Adobe Presenter's own Preview options. Having said so, these Preview options essentially render output on the fly and show it to you. If you are working on a large file, such previews can take awfully long to render. Thankfully, Presenter lets you preview just a single slide, or even a few slides quickly. Do remember though that it is a good idea to save your file before previewing. Also previewing individual slides as you work will save your time, and you can find any minor or major errors, and correct them soon.
Let us now explore the various Preview options that Adobe Presenter provides:
Assuming you are working on your presentation, save it again. Then access the Adobe Presenter tab of the Ribbon, and click the down-arrow of Preview button, highlighted in red within Figure 1. This brings up a drop-down menu (see Figure 1 again).

All the options within the Preview drop-down menu are explained below, as marked in Figure 1, above:
A. Preview Presentation
B. Preview Current Slide
C. Preview from Current Slide
D. Preview Next 5 Slides

E. Preview HTML
For all Preview options, you will see a Preview window, as shown in Figure 4. Here Adobe Presenter gathers all the information required to create a preview. This process may take a while depending upon the complexity of your presentation, or even the number of slides you are previewing.
