Before you are ready to present your presentation, you should check the settings in the Set Up Show window.  Here, you can change many options on how the presentation functions when it is being played.

Set Up Show

1.  Click Slide Show and select Set Up Show from the menu that appears.

2.  Figure 1.1 will display.

Figure 1.1

3.  At the top of the Set Up Show window, (Figure 1.1), you first must select how the presentation is being presented.  If you are presenting it with a computer screen or a projector, select the first (default) option: "Presented by a speaker".  If it will be browsed by someone other than you, click the second option.  If it will be browsed at a place such as a trade show where it will run constantly, select the third option.

4.  Next, check the proper options you want below the selection buttons.  

5.  In the drop-down menu below Pen color:, select the default color of the pen which can be used by you to draw on the screen.

6.  In the Slides frame box (to the right of Figure 1.1), select which slides you want shown in the presentation.  (You will typically want all slides shown.)

7.  In the Advance slides frame box (to the lower right of Figure 1.1), select how you want to slides to advance.  If you have timings recorded, select "Using timings, if present".  If you don't have timings recorded, select "Manually".

8.  If you are using a projector to present your presentation, click the Projector Wizard... button in Figure 1.1

9.  Click OK when finished.

Tip:  The Microsoft PowerPoint 98 Set Up Show window will look different from the one displayed here.  Also, PowerPoint 98 doesn't have the Projector Wizard... button displayed in Figure 1.1.
