Tech tips: How to view your speaker notes as you deliver your slide show in Powerpoint 2013

Posted In MS office - By Techtiplib on Sunday, October 7th, 2012 With No Comments »

You may have had a problem setting up Presenter View in the past but it’s vastly improved in PowerPoint 2013. Just connect the monitors and PowerPoint automatically sets it up. In Presenter View, you can see your notes as you present, while the audience sees only your slides.

At the bottom of the PowerPoint slide window, click Slide Show View.
