Reading View in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

Learn about the Reading View in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows.


Product/Version: PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

OS: Windows 7 and higher

The repertoire of various views available in PowerPoint 2013 ranges from some views that you use all the time to others that you may have never bothered to explore. The latter category probably includes Reading view. Reading view is similar to Slide Show view in some ways because in both views, the slide is shown in full screen mode. However, in Reading view you also see the PowerPoint title bar and the Status Bar at the top and bottom of the interface respectively, as you can see in Figure 1. Additionally, you can also view the Windows task bar at the bottom of the screen.

Reading view helps you in quickly navigating the slide show, and also allows easy access to the Windows task bar at the same time to switch to other available open programs or windows. Also Reading view is great for presentation designers who want to quickly look at their slides in full screen mode and also be in sync with other applications running at the same time.

To access the Reading view, select the View tab on the Ribbon, and click the Reading View button (highlighted in red within Figure 2).

Alternatively, you can also access Reading view from the left, in the View buttons that you can see towards the right side of the Status Bar (highlighted in red within Figure 3).

If you want to edit the presentation, you can always switch from Reading view to one of the other views using the view buttons that you can see towards right on the Status Bar.
