When presenting on windows, switching between a powerpoint (2016) presentation and a demo is problematic.
The goalDuring a presentation I am projecting the slides in extended view behind my back to the audience and have the presenter view on my laptop in front of me.
When I switch to a demo I want to duplicate my laptop screen to the projector.
I want to swap easily between both modes.
The ProblemI set up my PC in extended view (F8 on my laptop) and start the presentation: the full slide is projected and the presenter screen is on my laptop: fine.
When I start a demo, I duplicate my screen. The demo shows up in front of me and on the extended projected view: fine
When I switch back from demo view (duplicate screen) to extended view, the powerpoint presentation does not migrate back to the extended view.
The solution (sort of)
- Switch back to extended view
- right mouse menu in powerpoint presentation>duplicate slide show: the presentation is now shown in extended view (projector) and on my screen
- right mouse menu in powerpoint presenatation>show presnter view: the presenter view is on my laptop, the full slide is on the projector.
