Microsoft Office 2003 - Launch A Mini Slide Show So You Can Edit On The Fly In PowerPoint (2003)
Have you ever wished there was an easier way to view the results of your edits without having to launch your slide show and then toggle back to PowerPoint to make additional changes? Well, editing on the fly really is easy in PowerPoint if you know the shortcut command. Simply hold down the [Ctrl] key while you choose View | Slideshow and a miniature, yet fully functional slide show appears in the upper-left corner of the screen. Just make sure that your PowerPoint window is not fully maximized.
Now, you can make changes to your slides in PowerPoint, such as adjusting borders or updating hyperlinks, and see how they affect your presentation without having to relaunch it--all edits are applied to the mini slide show as soon as you make them.
