PowerPoint Presenter Mode
PowerPoint duplicate screen does not always automatically switch to extend mode (like it should), meaning presenter view does not start. If you have set up your PowerPoint to use presenter mode and it does not go into extended mode (one screen showing the full screen presentation and the other screen the presenter's version) when you start the presentation, do the following:
Exit Slide Show mode.
Select Windows + P keys on the podium PC and choose Extend.
Restart the Slide Show.
Note that if you exit the slide show for any reason and then return to it, you will need to repeat steps 1-3 again in order to have the notes visible to you.
Another workaround is to unselect presenter mode and then reselect using the following steps:
Open the PowerPoint application, click the Slide Show tab.
Locate the Monitors group > uncheck Use Presenter View.
In the Monitors group, click the Monitor dropdown menu >s elect the specific monitor on which the slideshow should display.
Close the PowerPoint application.
Open the PowerPoint application again, locate the Monitors group > check Use Presenter View > click the Monitor dropdown menu> select Automatic.
