How to Display PowerPoint 2007 Notes on a Separate Monitor

By Doug Lowe

If you have a computer that can use two monitors, you can display your PowerPoint notes on one monitor and show your PowerPoint slides on a projector connected to the other monitor. This way, you can see your notes on the monitor while your audience sees only the projected slides.

To enable this feature, follow these steps:

1Select the Slide Show tab and click the Set Up Show button (found in the Set Up group).

This summons the Set Up Show dialog box.

2In the Multiple Monitors section of the dialog box, change the Display Slide Show On setting to Secondary Monitor.

This moves your notes over to your second monitor.

3Switch to Notes View on the primary monitor.

Start the slide show on the secondary monitor to show the slides on the projector.
