Set up a presentation to run in a continuous loop

Important notice for users of Office 2003    To continue receiving security updates for Office, make sure you're running Office 2003 Service Pack 3 (SP3). The support for Office 2003 ends April 8, 2014. If you’re running Office 2003 after support ends, to receive all important security updates for Office, you need to upgrade to a later version such as Office 365 or Office 2013. For more information, see Support is ending for Office 2003.

  1. On the Slide Show menu, click Set Up Show.
  2. Select the Loop continuously until 'Esc' check box.


If you want a self-running presentation — for example, at a trade show kiosk — click Browsed at a kiosk (full screen) in the Set Up Show dialog box. This causes the presentation to loop and also restricts users from changing it.
