Slide Show in client application for Windows

Step 1: Click on the Slide Show Button

In the dialog box of the application, click on the slideshow button: pokaz_presentation

Step 2: Add Individual Files or Presentation File

Before showing your presentation, you need to add it to the dialog box. It’s more convenient to do it before the start of the conference, so that later during the event you would not spend time searching for files on your computer.

Please note: In order to work with .ppt and .pptx files you will need to have Microsoft PowerPoint software installed.

If you already have a presentation, open it using this button Open Presentation. You can also use separate images. To add them, use the icon add-slides. To delete slides from the list, use this button Delete Slide(s).

After you add the presentation, start slideshow using the button in the window:

slide_show

Additional Controls

New — Reset all added files.

Save — Save the presentation.

Move up — Moving the slide up the list/down the list.

To switch between slides, use the buttons Swithing.

How to increase the size of the presentation to fit the window?
Check “Fit to window” box and the image size will increase.

Click on the arrow to the left of the displayed image in the dialog box will hide the slide controls: arrow.
