Using the Presenter Console

The Presenter Console displays the slide show in an external screen (projector or large television), while the presentation controls are shown in the computer screen.

The Presenter Console provides extra control over slide shows by using different views on your computer display and on the display seen by the audience. The view you see on your computer display includes the current slide, the upcoming slide, optionally the slide notes, and a presentation timer.

The Presenter Console works only on an operating system that supports multiple displays and only when two displays are connected (one may be the laptop built-in display).
