This video demonstrates an easy trick you can apply to make your presentations start in slideshow mode when you double-click their file icons, preventing your audience from getting a peek your slides or notes in the Edit mode of PowerPoint.
- [Instructor] Hi, I'm Garrick Chow…and welcome to PowerPoint Tips Weekly.…When presenting a PowerPoint presentation,…most people will double-click on the file icon,…which as we know opens up PowerPoint.…And from here you can click the Present or Slideshow button…or press F5 to go into Slideshow mode.…And then you can start giving your presentation from here.…And that's just fine in most cases,…but one issue I sometimes have…is that when you start your presentation this way,…the audience can see your presentation in Edit mode first,…as we see here.…And that includes the thumbnails of your slides…here on the left and possibly your speaker notes.…
And you may not always want them to get an inadvertent peak…at the material you have coming up.…Now, of course, you can plan…on getting to your presentation venue ahead of your audience…and already be in Slideshow mode…when people start coming in.…But if you're one of many speakers,…and each person is taking turns plugging in their laptops…or opening their PowerPoints from the same laptop,…
