Chapter 12. Presenting an Onscreen Slide Show > Using the Slide Show Menu Tools

Using the Slide Show Menu Tools

PowerPoint also provides some other features that you will find very useful when you are running your slide show. For example, you can turn the mouse pointer into a pen (such as a ballpoint pen or a highlighter) that enables you to draw on a particular slide, enabling you to quickly emphasize a particular point visually. Other features include the ability to add speaking notes on the fly as you view the presentation. You can also blank out the current slide to a black or white screen, allowing you to pause for a moment and answer audience questions or comments.

These tools are accessed by clicking on the icons that appear on the bottom left of your presentation slides as you show the presentation. There is an icon for the pen feature and a second icon that brings up a menu that allows you to access screen settings and a Go To feature that allows you to quickly go to a particular slide in the presentation. We discuss the use of the pen, speaker notes, and the Go to feature in the sections that follow.
