PowerPoint presenter view in Zoom—with one monitor
Are you teaching remotely using Zoom? And you only have one monitor? Do you miss using PowerPoint presenter view in your classroom?
PowerPoint presenter view
This is what presenter view looks like. When you have a computer screen and a projector (or a second monitor), this is the view on your computer screen, and the slide alone shows on the projector (or second monitor). In this presenter view screen, you can see your next slide on the right, and right below that are any notes you’ve entered for the slide your audience is currently viewing. Under the currently-viewing slide are a few tools: pen/pointer, see all of the slides in your presentation (handy for jumping around your slides), magnifying glass for zooming in on a part of your slide, and black out the slide you are showing. Click the 3-dot icon for a few more options.
While you have all of those nifty tools at your disposable, this is what your audience sees projected on the screen.
To get presenter view, edit your PowerPoint, click the Slide Show tab, then check the “Use Presenter View” box.
If you have one monitor, however, and run your slide show, you will just see the slide like your audience would. To get the presenter view, right-click on the slide and select presenter view.
Using single-monitor PowerPoint presenter view with Zoom
To use presenter view with Zoom, it’s easy with two monitors. All you need to do is share the screen with the slide on it.
However, if you only have one monitor, you probably don’t want to share your entire presenter view screen. Good news. You don’t have to. You can choose to share only the slide portion of your presenter view screen.
In Zoom, click on Share Screen, then select the Advanced tab.
Then click Portion of Screen, and click the Share button.
A green box will appear. Whatever is in the green box is what your Zoom audience will see. Click and drag the bar at the top of the box to move it. Click and drag the sides/bottom/corners to resize it.
Zoom will remember the box size and location from session to session.
Before closing your PowerPoint presentation, stop sharing. If you don’t, when you close your PowerPoint, whatever is inside that green box will appear to your Zoom audience. When I closed my PowerPoint just now without stopping my Zoom screen share, my email was inside the green box – viewable to everyone who was in my Zoom room. Fortunately, I was the only one in my Zoom room, so no harm done. When you are done sharing, always stop sharing before doing anything else. As an added precaution, close all programs you are not going to be using before starting your Zoom session.

Perfect timing, Sue. I was JUST struggling with this trying to manage my single screen (eg, propping my cell on a soup can to record ppt on my monitor) and your step-by-step instructions streamlined the process. Thanks!

How to View Notes in PowerPoint While Presenting With One Monitor
Presenting a PowerPoint is a great way to engage and inform an audience, but it can be challenging to keep track of your notes while you’re presenting. Fortunately, PowerPoint includes a feature that allows you to view your speaker notes on one monitor while your audience sees the presentation on another. This makes it much easier to stay on track and deliver your message effectively. In this guide, we’ll take a detailed look at how to view notes in PowerPoint while presenting with one monitor, as well as some tips for getting the most out of this feature.
Table of Contents
Why Viewing Notes While Presenting is Important
When giving a presentation, it’s important to have access to your notes to stay on track and avoid missing important points. Viewing your notes while presenting can also help you remember key details and ensure that you’re delivering the information in an organized and effective manner. This can be especially important if you’re presenting complex or technical information. By having access to your notes, you can make sure you’re covering all the necessary points and answering any questions that might come up.
Another benefit of viewing your notes while presenting is that it can help you feel more confident and prepared. Knowing that you have your notes to refer to can alleviate any anxiety or nervousness you may feel about presenting. It can also give you a sense of security, knowing that you have all the information you need at your fingertips. By feeling more confident and prepared, you’re more likely to deliver a successful presentation that engages your audience and effectively conveys your message.
Understanding the Need for One Monitor
Using Presenter View in PowerPoint allows you to view your notes on your laptop or primary monitor while the audience sees only the presentation on the projected screen, even if you only have one monitor. This feature is particularly useful when you don’t have a dual-monitor setup. Presenter View provides a separate interface for the presenter that includes the current slide, speaker notes, and upcoming slides, ensuring that you can deliver your presentation smoothly without revealing your notes to the audience.
How to Access Notes in PowerPoint
Accessing your notes in PowerPoint while presenting on a single monitor is straightforward with Presenter View. To use Presenter View, start your PowerPoint presentation and go to the “Slide Show” tab in the ribbon menu. Then, check the “Use Presenter View” box. When you start the slideshow, your presentation will appear on the projected screen, while your notes and controls appear on your primary monitor. This allows you to reference your notes discreetly during the presentation.
Step-by-Step Guide to Viewing Notes in PowerPoint
Here’s a step-by-step guide to viewing your notes in PowerPoint using Presenter View:
- Open your PowerPoint presentation.
- Navigate to the slide on which you wish to start presenting.
- Select the “Slide Show” tab in the ribbon menu.
- Check the “Use Presenter View” box.
- Start your presentation by clicking on “From Beginning” or “From Current Slide.”
- Your notes will appear on your primary monitor, while the audience will see only the slides on the presentation screen.
Remember, your audience will not see your notes, allowing you to discreetly reference them during your presentation.
Tips for Presenting With One Monitor
Here are some tips for presenting with one monitor:
- Practice your presentation beforehand to make sure you’re comfortable with the software and know how to access Presenter View.
- Use the Presenter View to keep track of key points and ensure that you’re covering all the necessary information.
- Put your notes in bullet-point format to make them easy to follow and read while presenting.
- Use concise language and avoid excessive text on your slides.
- Maintain eye contact with your audience as much as possible, even when referencing your notes.
How to Customize Your Notes View in PowerPoint
PowerPoint allows you to customize your notes view to suit your preferences. To do so, enter Presenter View and hover over the notes section. You can then adjust the font size and formatting to make your notes easier to read. Additionally, you can rearrange the on-screen elements in Presenter View to suit your presenting style.
Shortcut Keys for Easy Navigation Through Notes
PowerPoint includes a number of keyboard shortcuts that can help you navigate through your presentation easily. Here are some of the most useful ones:
- Use the “N” key or the right arrow to move forward one slide at a time.
- Use the “P” key or the left arrow to move backward one slide at a time.
- Press “Ctrl” + “S” to access the “All Slides” view, where you can select a specific slide to jump to.
Troubleshooting Common Issues When Viewing Notes
If you’re having trouble viewing your notes in PowerPoint using Presenter View, ensure that Presenter View is enabled in the “Slide Show” tab. If the notes are not appearing, try restarting PowerPoint or your computer to resolve any temporary glitches. Additionally, check that your screen resolution and display settings are correctly configured to support Presenter View.
Alternative Methods for Viewing Notes While Presenting
If you prefer not to use Presenter View or encounter difficulties, you can print out your notes and refer to them as needed. Another option is to split your screen, displaying the presentation in a window on one half and a document with your notes on the other half. This method requires you to manually scroll your notes, but it can be a useful alternative.
Best Practices for Using Notes During a Presentation
Here are some best practices for using notes during a presentation:
- Don’t rely too heavily on your notes–practice your presentation beforehand and aim to deliver your message in a natural, conversational tone.
- Use your notes as a guide rather than a script.
- Keep your notes organized and easy to follow.
- Make sure to address any questions or concerns that come up during the presentation.
- Try to engage with your audience and create a rapport with them.
Benefits of Using One Monitor While Presenting
Using one monitor while presenting with Presenter View has several benefits. It allows you to reference your notes discreetly, helps you stay organized and on track, and enables you to maintain better eye contact with your audience. This setup can also simplify your presentation space and reduce the risk of technical issues.
Advanced Techniques for Managing Your Presentation and Notes on One Monitor
As you become more comfortable with Presenter View, you can explore additional features such as the thumbnail strip to preview upcoming slides, the timer to keep track of your speaking duration, and the ability to zoom into a particular slide detail during your presentation.
How to Switch Between Different Views During Presentation Mode
To switch between different views during presentation mode, you can use the following methods:
- To access Presenter View, start your slideshow and press the “Alt” + “F5” keys.
- To exit Presenter View and return to the normal view, press the “Esc” key.
- To black out the screen during the presentation, press the “B” or period key.
How to Control Slides, Animations and Media During the Presentation with One Monitor
During your presentation, you can control slides, animations, and media with the following actions:
- To advance to the next slide or animation, press the right arrow key or click the left mouse button.
- To return to the previous slide or animation, press the left arrow key.
- To play a video or audio file, click on it directly or use the media controls in Presenter View.
- To pause or stop the media, use the media controls in Presenter View.
With these tips and techniques in mind, you should now be well-equipped to view your notes in PowerPoint while presenting with one monitor. Remember to practice beforehand and experiment with different techniques to find the ones that work best for you. With a little bit of preparation and practice, you can deliver a confident and effective presentation that engages and informs your audience.

Mulitple Monitor Transcript
If you are fine with just plugging your projector into your external display port of your laptop and hitting F5 to run your slide show on a big project. And it works every time, then you are good to go. But if you want to take full control of utilizing one or two or even three combinations of monitors or projector systems, then the next five minutes will put you in control.
Hi, this is Les McCarter of Power UP Training, where I take my decades of PowerPoint experience and share it with you for free.
Do subscribe to our YouTube channel to encourage me to make more free training videos for you.
In the next five minutes, I will show you how to take complete control of how PowerPoint interacts with multiple monitors, including tricks of how to get Presenter view to show up on one monitor plus how to control where the project screen show will show up every time! No fumbling on stage in front of your audience. Plus some bonus tips.
Let’s go power up to Taking Control of your multiple monitors.
Let’s start with a single connected monitor and get used to examining the DISPLAY SETTINGS to confirm our configuration.
Make sure you can see your desktop; for me it is one of my ocean photographs.
Right-click the empty desktop and select DISPLAY SETTINGS.
In our 1 monitor scenario, we see NO MENTION display. Take note, as when we return, we will see a screen like this.
So no changes here, lets go ahead and open up PowerPoint with an existing
It should come as no surprise that if you launch a slide show, it show up full screen on your single monitor.
But here is a SLICK TRICK of on your keyboard do a ALT+F5 to show the presenter mode on a single monitor to do a practice run on presenting without a two-screen setup. This is just for practice but it is useful. Once again, just ALT-F5 and he PRESENTER MODE pops up instead of the full-screen presentation
Let’s move on to the TWO MONITOR Scenario.
Just like before, I will show my desktop and right click to select DISPLAY SETTINGS.
Here we see that we do have two displays and if we click IDENTIFY, we can match up which one is which in relative relations to each other
Do note that my background is duplicated on all my displays, so I will add some numbers for us to track which is which.
Back to the same PowerPoint Presentation which pops up on monitor 1. and when in SLIDE SHOW view, we can see that the display is set on the default AUTOMATIC. Which to me is just a roll of the dice for which monitor will pop up the slide show and which for the presenter view.
If you don’t like the layout, then just go the PRESENTER VIEW, and click DISPLAY SETTINGS and chooses SWAP PRESENTER VIEW AND SLIDE SHOW to have them jump back and forth.
If you want to take full control, then in SLIDE SHOW view, click the drop down arrow for MONITOR and choose. It may be confusing as you need to know either which is your primary monitor or use the earlier trick to find you DISPLAY number. In our case, we will force the presentation to MONITOR #1
So you can either just swap when live, or elect to choose in advance in SLIDE SHOW and MONITOR.
Now to our last scenario: 3 monitors on one computer. As before, let’s look at our setup by going to our desktop RIGHT CLICKing and choosing DISPLAY SETTINGS
In Windows 10, the monitor numbering is tied to your video card ports, not where they are physically located on your desk. Like a card in the computer game solitaire, you can click and drag the monitor number to match the physical location of each monitor. Also take note, the my monitor #2 is a much smaller resolution monitor as seen in the screen menu, but I am showing it as full screen in this tutorial.
Now let’s check out where the slide show and presenter windows will show up. I will reset the DISPLAY in SLIDE SHOW VIEW back to Automatic and then launch the slide show.
So the actual presentation show is on monitor #2 to the farthest right and the presenter view is on Monitor #3 in the middle and our regular edit NORMAL view is shown on Monitor #1 on the far left.
Now watch what happens when in the presenter windows, I tell it to swap monitors and all it does is swap between monitors #2 and #3, leaving monitors #1 untouched.
So is there any advantage to working on three monitors?
Yes. In my final workflow, while do a last minute quality review, I will have all three views up on my workstation to look at how everything flows both on the big screen slide show and the presenter view. And if I have any corrections, I can do them LIVE on the normal edit view with the results immediately shows.
Watch how I add in a new slide in the normal edit view and insert a photo, with the resulting new slide automatically showing up in both the slide show and in my presenter view.
Wrap Up (New Slide)
Now you have all the need knowledge to take complete control of your PowerPoint presentation monitors.
Here is one extra bonus tip. If you have a tabletop presentation, but no projector, just setup a second monitor to face away from you. Then put your display settings (Windows Key + P for Project) and select DUPLICATE. Now the slide show will be facing you and your tabletop audience.

How to choose screen where Presenter View is shown in Powerpoint 365
My setup consists of two monitors and my laptop's screen. When I turn "Slide Show" on Powerpoint, no matter what is the monitor configuration under Slide Show tab, Monitors group, I get one of the following:
1. The presentation is shown on one of the monitors, while the Presenter View is shown on the laptop screen.

Thanks for your feedback.
I'm using Windows 10 Enterprise. Monitors are arranged according to their physical position (the two monitors above the laptop).

I don't have a setup to test this, but if you're using Windows, you should be able to set up your external monitors to display when your laptop is closed. Then PowerPoint might use just the two external monitors: How to use an external monitor with your laptop closed
This works, thank you. I configured the laptop to "do nothing" when the lid is closed.

How to Work with Presenter View in PowerPoint
Not all presenters have excellent memory recall or the ability to speak flawlessly to the audience without any cues. However, many of them are good at hiding it by using Presenter View in PowerPoint. It is a presentation mode that enables the presenter to hide speaker notes and presentation controls from the audience while leveraging the various handy features offered by PowerPoint.
How to Use Presenter View in PowerPoint
To start using Presenter View, ensure it’s enabled before you begin your slideshow. If you are new to this feature, we recommend using this option to familiarize yourself with the various navigation options for this presentation mode. This might also be helpful if the PowerPoint templates you are accustomed to using might have animations that you might want to preview in this mode to understand when to give the next visual cue.
How to Enable Presenter View in PowerPoint
To enable PowerPoint presenter view, go to the SlideShow tab and make sure the Use Presenter View option is enabled. This will ensure that you can access Presenter View when you switch your slides to SlideShow mode.
Adjust Display Settings
You can swap between the presenter view and slideshow mode or duplicate the slideshow to exit the Presenter View from the Display Settings menu from the top toolbar.
Navigate Slides in Presenter View
Like any standard PowerPoint presentation in SlideShow mode, you can navigate between slides by using the arrow keys or with a presentation remote. Presenter View also provides slide navigation buttons to move the slides back and forth.
View Taskbar in Presenter View
The Show Taskbar option at the top enables viewing the taskbar. This can be helpful if you require using the taskbar, such as to view your battery charge, see the time, enable or disable another app from the taskbar menu, etc.
Reset or Pause the Timer
Once you start your presentation in Presenter View, a timer starts showing how much time you have spent in slideshow mode. This is an excellent way to understand how much time you have consumed for your session and to keep an eye out for good timekeeping. You can also hit Pause or reset the timer anytime.
Change the Size of the Speaker Notes
How to view notes in PowerPoint while presenting? If you have any speaker notes added to your slides, they will appear in Presenter View on your screen. You can increase or reduce the size of the text via the two options at the bottom of the speaker notes pane.
Using Annotation Tools in Presenter View
PowerPoint annotation tools can be accessed from the bottom toolbar in Presenter View. The Pen and Laser Pointer Tools button gives you access to the pen, ink colors, laser pointer, and eraser and also allows you to show or hide the mouse pointer via Arrow Options .
View All Slides in Presenter View
If you need to go back and forth to find a relevant slide for an ongoing discussion or query during your presentation, you can view all slides in Presenter View via the See all slides option.
Zoom Slides using Presenter View
PowerPoint’s Zoom feature lets presenters quickly pick a portion of the slide to zoom into. Presenter View allows you to leverage this feature by instantly selecting a portion of the slide to enlarge it after selecting Zoom into the slide option. To exit the Zoom mode or hit the Esc key.
Black or Unblack SlideShow
Sometimes, you might want to turn the screen blank for a while, such as during a mid-presentation break. The Black or Unblack SlideShow option blanks the slides for your audience while continuing to show you all navigation options via Presenter View.
Toggle Subtitles in Presenter View
One of the most revolutionary features introduced by Microsoft for PowerPoint over the past decade has been Live captions. This feature enables subtitles by converting speech to text as you present. You can toggle Live subtitles on or off while in presenter view to help your audience read what you speak.
Toggle Camera in Presenter View
Like subtitles, you can also toggle the camera on or off in Presenter View.
End Slideshow in Presenter View
There are different ways to end or exit a SlideShow from Presenter View. You can hit the Esc key or click End Slide Show . Similarly, you can click the three dots at the bottom and select End Show .
More Slideshow Options
Other than the various visibility prominent menus available to navigate, annotate, and present your slides, you can also find a few additional options via More slideshow options , which are accessible via the three dots at the bottom toolbar. These include adjusting the position of the subtitles, turning your screen white or black, ending the slideshow, etc.
How to Use Presenter View on a Single Screen
While Presenter View can be enabled to work with dual monitors, you can also use Presenter View on a single monitor with remote meeting apps like Zoom. A simple method for switching to Presenter View on a single monitor is to click the three dots ( More slideshow options ) at the bottom in SlideShow mode and select Show Presenter View .
You can also switch to Presenter View on a single monitor anytime using the ALT+F5 hotkey.
The presenter can easily manage a PPT in presentation mode, with the utility to view speaker notes, annotate or zoom slides, toggle subtitles or camera on or off, and keep your audience engaged via better slideshow management. However, if you’re new to this presentation mode, a bit of practice might help you avoid confusion when presenting before an audience in Presenter View for the first few times.

Examination regulations, thematic preparation.
Finding a topic and supervisor for your master's thesis may take some time, so please start the process early. The assignment, supervision, and grading of master's theses is limited to professors, junior professors, and university lecturers (Hochschuldozenten, Privatdozenten, akademische Räte).
The master's thesis can be written in the following fields: – Economics – Statistics – Econometrics – Economic History
As a rule, you are expected to suggest possible topics and the intended approach. You do not need to submit detailed concepts at this point. The focus is on giving your supervisor an idea of what you intend to do. More specific details would then be agreed upon in further exchange.
Please be aware that the supervisor can make his or her supervision dependent on your completion of suitable courses (i.e. thematically appropriate lecture and/ or suitable seminar).
Administrative Preparation, Step 1: E-mail to the Student Services
The master's thesis can be started in the fourth semester at the earliest. The prerequisite for admission to the master's thesis is that you have passed at least one seminar (or if the seminar is not yet completed, it can be considered as passed) and that you have obtained 45 ECTS credits in the specialization phase. It is also important whether you have already returned a masters's thesis topic.
To confirm the fulfillment of all prerequisites to your examiner, please send an e-mail from your Mannheim e-mail account to the Student Services ([email protected]), with the subject “Masters's Thesis” and the following content:
“Dear Sir or Madam,
I wish to write my master's thesis and prove to my supervisor that I meet the admission requirements. Please confirm to me by e-mail that (1) I have passed a seminar / a seminar can be considered as passed (delete as appropriate), (2) I have obtained 45 ECTS credits in the spezialization phase, (3) my entitlement for examination persists overall and for the master's thesis module, (4) this is my first attempt / a repeat attempt (delete as appropriate) in the master's thesis module, and (5) I have not yet returned a master's thesis topic / I have already once returned my master's thesis topic (delete as appropriate).
[first name, last name, matriculation number ]"
Note to (1): A seminar may be considered passed before the end of the course if the majority of the work has been completed and only a final grade of 4.0 or better is mathematically possible. The examiner responsible for the seminar must have informed the Student Services about this separately before you send your e-mail to the Student Services.
Administrative Preparation, Step 2: E-mail to Your Supervisor
As soon as you have coordinated the topic and start date of your master's thesis with your supervisor, forward the reply from the Student Services from step 1 via your Mannheim e-mail account to your supervisor and precede it with the following text:
I, [first name] [last name], [matriculation number], would like to formally register my master's thesis with you. We agreed on the following topic:
[Title of the Masters's thesis]
I kindly ask you to confirm the topic, start date, and latest submission date by e-mail, with CC to the Student Services ( [email protected] ).
Please note that the processing time starts on the day this e-mail is sent. The processing time for master's theses is 23 weeks.
Confirmation by Your Supervisor
Your supervisor confirms to you via e-mail, with a copy to the Student Services, the topic of the master's thesis and the latest submission date (start date plus 23 weeks). If you believe there are discrepancies with the agreements made in the preliminary discussions, please contact your supervisor immediately.
Maybe: Return of the Topic
The master's thesis can be returned once and only within the first four weeks of the processing time to the responsible examiner. The examiner informs the Student Services of the return date. If returned in time, the examination attempt is considered not undertaken; otherwise, the examination persists.
In the case of a returned thesis, a new topic must be agreed upon. You can also choose a different examiner for this.
When repeating a failed master's thesis, the return of the topic is only permissible if this option was not used in the first examination attempt.
To return your topic, quote the entire e-mail sent to your supervisor in step 2 and send it again to them via your Mannheim e-mail account, preceding it with the following text:
I hereby return the topic of my master's thesis [Title of the master's thesis in English] with the agreed start date [Date].
As you can see from the initial confirmation from the Student Services, I have not yet returned a master's thesis topic.
I kindly ask you to confirm the return of the topic by e-mail, with CC to the Student Services.
Maybe: Confirmation by Your Supervisor
Your supervisor confirms to you via e-mail, with a copy to the Student Services, the return of the topic. You now agree on a new topic and continue with the point Administrative Preparation, Step 2: E-mail to Your Supervisor. When selecting a new supervisor, you must include in your e-mail that you meanwhile returned the topic once; otherwise, it constitutes an attempt of deception.
Maybe: Request for an Extension of the Processing Time
In exceptional cases, the Examination Committee may grant an extension of up to four weeks for the submission of the master's thesis. The request for an extension must be submitted at least eight days before the deadline and must be approved by the supervisor of the master's thesis.
If you wish to request an extension of the processing time, please send your informal request with the specified extension period either as a signed pdf file via your Mannheim e-mail account to econgrad mail- uni-mannheim.de or in writing (i.e., on paper with an original signature) to the Examination Committee (Attn: Sebastian Herdtweck). If you are requesting an extension due to illness, please submit the original medical certificate to the Examination Committee.
The Examination Committee will inquire about the approval of your supervisor. You will receive an answer from the Examination Board regarding your request.
Postal address of the Examination Committee:
University of Mannheim Examination Committee M.Sc. Economics Attn: Sebastian Herdtweck L 7, 3–5, Room 405 68131 Mannheim
Submission of the Master's Thesis
The completed master's thesis is to be submitted to your supervisor no later than the specified (possibly extended) submission deadline in duplicate form as two paper copies. The submission deadline can be met by delivery to a post office, documented by certificate of posting. Please coordinate with your supervisor regarding submission in good time. He/ she can appoint a substitute to receive the thesis, but this must be arranged transparently for all parties involved in advance. The uncoordinated delivery of the master's thesis to a different location than previously designated does not fulfill the requirements of the examination regulations.
The examiner may also require submission in electronic form.
Neither the student nor the examiner is required to notify the Student Services of the timely submission of the master's thesis. However, the examiner shall promptly inform the Student Services of any failure to submit the thesis on time and the resulting grade of 5.0 in accordance with the examination regulations.
If you have not passed your master's thesis and still have a second attempt available, please proceed with Step 1 of the Administrative Preparation.

Present on multiple monitors (and view speaker notes privately)
You can present with 2 monitors: Using Presenter View is a great way to view your presentation with speaker notes on one monitor (your laptop, for example), while your audience views the notes-free presentation on a different monitor (like a larger screen you're projecting to).
Note: Make sure the device you're using for your presentation supports the use of multiple monitors. Check with your manufacturer for up-to-date information about multiple monitor support.
To do this procedure and split the view between projectors in this way, you must be connected to the second screen.
Set up PowerPoint to use Presenter view with two monitors
On the Slide Show tab, in the Monitors group, select Use Presenter View .
Windows Display Settings should open.
In the Display Settings dialog box, on the Monitor tab, select the monitor icon that you want to use to view your speaker notes, and then select the This is my main monitor check box.
If the This is my main monitor check box is selected and unavailable, the monitor is already designated as the primary monitor.
Select the monitor icon for the second monitor—the one the audience will watch, and then select the Extend my Windows Desktop onto this monitor check box.
Notes: If the Windows Display Settings don't open, do the following:
Windows 10: Click Start > Settings > System > Display . At the top, under Customize your display , is a diagram of the screens connected to your computer, with each screen numbered. If you are connected to a project, typically it will be represented in the diagram as screen 2. Select screen 1 in the diagram, then scroll downward. Ensure that the check box named Make this my main display is selected. Above that check box, in the Multiple displays list, select Extend these displays .
Windows 8: Right-click the Windows Start button, click Control Panel > Display > Adjust resolution . In the Multiple displays list, click Extend these displays . Select the monitor on which you want to view your speaker notes, and click Make this my main display .
You can use PowerPoint on your smartphone as a remote control to run your presentation and view your speaker notes. See Using a laser pointer on your smartphone when presenting in PowerPoint for more information, including a brief video.
Deliver your presentation on two monitors
On the Slide Show tab, in the Set Up group, click Set Up Slide Show .
In the Set Up Show dialog box, choose the options that you want, and then click OK . If you choose Automatic , PowerPoint will display speaker notes on the laptop monitor, if available. Otherwise, PowerPoint will display speaker notes on the main display identified in your Display settings ( Settings > Display ).
Extend vs. Duplicate: What happens after the slide show ends
PowerPoint does something behind the scenes to make the process of starting a slide show on a second monitor as smooth and quick as possible. When you enter Slide Show, PowerPoint automatically changes your display settings (also known as your display topology) to Extend .
What can be confusing is what happens after your slide show concludes:
In PowerPoint 2013 , when your slide show ends, PowerPoint leaves the display topology as Extend . (The benefit of this approach is that the next time you present on a second monitor, the first slide will appear with minimal delay. The drawback is that PowerPoint may be overriding your preferred display setting of "duplicate". Some people don't like this override.)
In newer versions , in the same end-of-slide-show scenario, PowerPoint reverts to your default setting, returning to Duplicate , if that's what you have chosen.
If you are using PowerPoint 2013 and you want PowerPoint to revert to the default setting, rather than keeping the Extend setting, you can tell it to do that by making a small change to the Windows registry as described below.
In this procedure, you are creating a command that adds a new setting to the Windows Registry for PowerPoint, and then you are running that command:
Create a new file in Notepad.
Copy and paste the following three lines of text into Notepad:
On the File menu in Notepad, click Save As .
Name the file Update.reg . (It's important that the file name extension be .reg ).
In the Save as type box, choose All Files (*.*) .
Take note of the folder in which you are saving the file. Then click Save , and close Notepad.
Open File Explorer from the Start menu and navigate to the folder where you saved Update.reg.
Double-click Update.reg .
Answer "Yes" to the two prompts that ensue.
With that completed, PowerPoint will now revert to your default display topology at the conclusion of a slide show.
