Chapter 31. PowerPoint Essentials > Viewing a Presentation

Viewing a Presentation

PowerPoint starts in Normal view. You can return to this view at any time by choosing View, Normal, or by selecting the Normal View icon on the View bar in the lower left corner of the screen. In Normal view, you can see either a text outline of your presentation or thumbnails of all the slides in the left-most pane. The current slide appears in the main pane, with the slide's notes just below it.

Normal view is highly customizable. To dismiss the left navigation pane and the notes pane temporarily, leaving only the current slide, click the X at the top left of the navigation pane. To restore both panes, choose View, Normal (Restore Panes). You can also click and drag the edge of any pane to resize that portion of the view. Compare the configuration of Figure 31.7, for instance, with the default view shown earlier in Figure 31.1. We dragged the border of the outline pane nearly all the way to the right and set the Zoom menu to 30%. Using this arrangement allows you to concentrate on content, leaving just a small preview of the current slide and any accompanying notes.
