One action that many of us do frequently on MS PowerPoint is going for slideshow to check how the slides look after some editing/modifications. This consumes time and is equally irritating. But you will be delighted to know that MS PowerPoint has a wonderful feature in place which allows us to view and edit a slide simultaneously. This is how it is to be used.
1. Open the presentation and select the slide you want to edit
2. Press CTRL tab and click on the slideshow button. Don’t release the tab while doing this.
3. A medium sized window will open in the top left corner displaying the particular slide.
4. Any modification in the original slide will be displayed in the window as well. You can switch between the two easily through ALT + Tab keys.
There are a couple of points worth noting here
a) Don’t use the combination of CTRL + F5. It will just change the window size of the presentation. Click on the slideshow button instead after pressing CTRL.
b) Due to the small size of the view window, one can only have an overall view of the slide. Any text editing will be hardly visible unless the font size is large.
