How to ... present PowerPoint in a smaller (individual) window
If you are teaching online, you might want to use a PowerPoint while other applications are still open - for example an online dictionary or a Word document to take notes. Watch the short video below for instructions on how to show a PowerPoint presentation while other applications are open at the same time. This is especially useful if you are teaching online in Zoom - you can use the share screen function to share only the PowerPoint and keep the other documents hidden from your learners.
And here is a quick step-by-step summary of my instructions in case it was too fast:
- Open your PowerPoint.
- Click on Slide Show.
- Click on Set up slide show.
- Click on Browsed by an individual (window).
- Resize your PowerPoint window.
- Start the show. You can still use your desktop as normal while presenting.
