How to Make Your PowerPoint 2007 Presentation a User-Run Presentation

PowerPoint displays a taskbar along the bottom of the window in a user-run presentation. PowerPoint lets you make a scrollbar appear along the right side of the window as well so that people viewing your presentation can scroll from slide to slide. Previous and Next don’t appear in a user-run presentation. To get from slide to slide, users have to click action buttons and hyperlinks.

Follow these steps to declare your presentation a user-run presentation and maybe allow users to navigate from slide to slide with the scrollbar:

1

Select the Slide Show tab.

Slide Show options display.

2

Click the Set Up Slide Show button.

You see the Set Up Show dialog box.

3

Select the Browsed by an Individual (Window) option button.

This option button is found under Show Type.

4

Optionally, click the Show Scrollbar check box.

Scrollbars help viewers navigate.

5

Click OK.

Your presentation is no longer quite yours. It also belongs to all the people who will view it in your absence.
