Or you just want to use this slide deck in a webinar, or even see them yourself to understand how they look in full-screen view? In that case, the view that plays your presentation in full-screen mode is Slide Show view, as shown in Figure 1.

Remember that Slide Show view is purely a display view and no editing can be done on slides at this point of time. However, Slide Show view has some navigation and annotation options. If you hover your cursor over the bottom left area of the slide, you'll find four watermarked navigation icons that you can see in Figure 5.

These icons are explained below, as marked in Figure 5, above:

A. Previous Slide

Click this icon to navigate to the previous slide (or press the P or Left Arrow keys).

B. Next Slide

Click this icon to navigate to the next slide (or press the N, Right Arrow, or Spacebar keys).

C. End Show

Click this icon to end the Slide Show.

During Slide Show, consecutive slides are shown one after the other. But you can change this pattern and access a particular slide in between, provided you know the number of that slide. Follow these steps to know more:

  1. Right-click on the slide, and from the resultant menu, select the Go to Slide option, as shown in Figure 6.
  2. Go to Slide option
    Figure 6: Go to Slide option
  3. This will access the Go To window, as shown in Figure 7. Here, you can see the slide number of the active slide within the Slide section (refer to Figure 7, again). Overwrite this current slide number with the slide number you want to show and click the OK button.
  4. Go To window
