Instead of making a mess with paper cue cards in hand and using a stopwatch, you can display your notes, see upcoming slides and keep track of your timing on your computer screen, hidden from audience view – all while projecting your presentation.
It’s something of a small hack, and it will require your computer’s video card support extended desktops.
- Once you are connected to a projector, right-click on the desktop and choose properties. Under settings, click the second monitor and check the ‘Extend my Windows Desktop onto this monitor’.
- Launch PowerPoint, selected “SlideShow | Set Up Show.” Under “Multiple Monitors,” select “Display slide show on Monitor 2” and check “Show Presenter View.”
- Now just make a killer presentation, in exactly the right time, looking like you don’t even need those notes.
